Using the Want Ads. A Janus Survival Guide.
Jew, Wing; Tandy, Carol
Originally intended for students with reading problems, this booklet may also be helpful to anyone who wants to make use of newspaper want ads. The eight teaching units discuss the following topics: (1) purposes for want ads, (2) finding want ads, (3) letting the alphabet help in reading want ads, (4) looking for a job, (5) looking for an apartment, (6) looking for a car or bicycle, (7) writing want ads, and (8) using the local newspaper. The final section of the booklet contains a guide to the phonetic respellings of abbreviations commonly used in want ads. A brief teacher's manual accompanies the booklet. (HTH)
