Work Education. Guidelines for Teachers and Administrators.
Manitoba Dept. of Education, Winnipeg.
This guide for coordinating the efforts of teachers and administrators provides a framework for setting up and improving work education programs within the parameters of the legislation and definitions that apply in the Province of Manitoba. The first five sections discuss work education. Work education is defined, and programs that use work education are described; some objectives are listed; and the related in-school instruction is briefly addressed. The next two sections discuss the two basic principles of work education: cooperation and communication. The participants in work education are the focuses of the next seven sections--students, parents, employers, workers, teachers, administrators, and advisory committees. Five sections offer guidelines regarding the legal aspects of work education, specifically the Public Schools Act and regulations, Workers Compensation, student age limitations, liability, and use of forms. The mechanics of work education is addressed in four sections on: planning the use of work education in a program, recruiting and maintaining work stations, caring for the student in the workplace, and helpful hints from practitioners on a variety of topics. Appendixes include examples of forms, situations in which checklists are useful, suggested community resources, a listing of resource materials, and pertinent excerpts from Manitoba law. (YLB)
