Don't Get Fired! 13 Ways to Hold Your Job.
This guide contains thirteen dialogues designed to help students become aware of reasons workers lose their jobs. Each dialogue involves young workers in confrontations with their bosses, fellow workers, or customers. Dialogues included are (1) Be on Time; (2) Be Responsible; (3) Stick to the Schedule; (4) Follow Directions; (5) Be Friendly and Helpful; (6) Remember, Business Comes First; (7) Keep Yourself Busy; (8) Take Criticism Wisely; (9) Leave Your Blues at Home; (10) Get Along with Others; (11) Take Pride in Your Work; (12) Don't Argue with Your Boss; and (13) Above All, Be Honest. Each dialogue concludes with followup exercises that help students evaluate what happened in the dialogue and explore similar situations so that they may draw some conclusions about alternative ways to behave. The guide concludes with a student self-rating table and a guide to the phonetic respellings found in the guidebook. A teachers manual is appended. (LRA)
