Fair Employment Practices. Instructor's Guide [and] Student Materials. Business Issues in the Classroom. Revised.
Maxey, Phyllis F.
Designed to help secondary school students understand employment practices and prepare for future job interviews, this 5-day unit focuses on the interplay among businesses, employees, and the government in determining fair hiring practices. Two sections include a teacher's guide and a student activity packet. Following an overview of activities and objectives, the teacher's guide describes five daily lessons. Also included are a list of follow-up activities, answer keys, student handouts, and recommendations for using business people as classroom resources. The student materials contain six learning activities. Students examine such topics as the role of the personnel manager, fair conduct toward prospective employees, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, government regulatory agencies, and job interview techniques. Specific activities include readings, role playing, a simulated job interview, case studies of Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) disputes, job application forms, and a vocabulary worksheet. (LP)
