Work Attitudes Handbook. A Unit of Study To Teach Students Positive Work Attitudes.
Shoff, Phil; And Others
This handbook provides an introductory series of exercises for teaching students about those work attitudes which have been identified by employers as success-related. The purpose of the unit is to increase students' awareness to the point where they will have the choice of behaving in such a way as to help ensure their job success. The handbook is divided into seven lessons for identifying work attitudes and eight lessons for acquiring work attitudes. The 15 lessons, written so that each one builds on the previous one, include: (1) a purpose statement; (2) the materials needed for teaching the lesson; (3) the time required to complete the lesson; (4) activities which illustrate an attitude and/or provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate understanding of that attitude; and (5) the procedure for conducting each activity. References to additional information and optional activities are provided at the end of each lesson in the section on acquiring work attitudes. A student performance evaluation handout and a work attitude rating sheet are included. (JW)
