Learning Laboratories for Unemployed, Out-of-School Youth.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Continuing Education Curriculum Development.
Based on an innovative learning laboratory approach, the five curriculums contained herein are designed to develop the basic skills and positive attitudes of out of school youth and thereby increase their chances for employment while motivating them toward further education and vocational training. First, a plan for program administration is mapped out: program goals, student selection and recruitment, daily operational scheduling, supplemental programs and services, organizational structure, staff selection and orientation, basic instructional methods and goals. The next two sections cover skills in writing, reading, speaking, and listening, and budgeting and general mathematics. Smoking, narcotics, safety, venereal diseases, mental health, environmental pollution, and other health education topics are also presented, followed by an extensive section on occupational orientation (job seeking, interviews, vocational training, equal employment, on the job behavior, and so on). Numerous aspects of social and personal development appear in the fifth curriculum. Audiovisual aids, and suggested instructional materials are also covered, as well as techniques for using community resources and organizing student activities. (LY)
