Learning Laboratories for Unemployed, Out-of-School Youth--Communication Skills.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Continuing Education Curriculum Development.
Prepared by an English instructor and a reading supervisor from ideas suggested by an advisory committee of teachers, this compilation of learning activities is designed for use by language arts teachers to supplement the curriculum resource handbook, "Learning Laboratories for Unemployed, Out-of-School Youth" (ED 047 273). The 19 activities, which are intended to orient the disadvantaged student to the world of work, emphasize such topics as nonverbal communication, writing skills, speech patterns, and completing job application forms. Each activity contains these components: (1) reference to the communication skills section of the curriculum resource handbook, (2) objective, (3) teaching procedure, (4) evaluation suggestions, and (5) student worksheets which may be duplicated and/or used for transparencies. An introductory section provides further suggestions for the teacher, including the recommendation that learning activities be organized in short, achievable units which can be gradually increased when the students' attention span, interest, and work habits improve. A related publication is available as VT 015 447 in this issue. (SB)
