Work Experience Education Instructional Guide.
Mathiasen, Bill; And Others
This instructional guide is designed to provide work experience education coordinators with a series of topical items which can be incorporated into the related instruction portion of a high school student's work experience education program. The activities in this instructional guide represent a common core of concepts and understandings essential to the total education of the student; they can be used for individual instruction or in a group instructional setting. A total of 94 instructional activities are included in the guide, organized under a work experience education activity matrix which links learning objectives and developmental processes (knowledges, attitudes, self-awareness, and skills) with the various activities. The activities are grouped in six subject areas: input activities (to provide the instructor with baseline data about the students), career development activities, how to get a job, how to keep a job, how to leave a job, and the economics of worklife (such as paychecks, savings accounts, taxes and establishing credit). For each activity, a rationale is given, and methods, resources, time, the main idea, employer participation and coordinator notes are included. Each of the activities also include content information and student worksheets. Although the guide was developed for use in work experience programs in California, it can be used in any location with a few modifications. (KC)
