Teaching Students How to Get Along on the Job.
Crosby, Richard K.
Vocational education teachers can use a variety of teaching methods and classroom techniques to help their students develop good work attitudes. First, the teacher can serve as a role model, acting as students should act when they are employed in industry. Along with role modeling, teachers should make sure that attitudinal development finds its way into all aspects of an instructional program. Implementing a plan to develop attitudes requires the teacher to evaluate students' progress continuously in relation to their learning characteristics. The Affective Work Competencies Inventory (AWCI) is one particularly effective tool for evaluating student work attitudes in 15 different areas. This inventory is especially revealing when used in a pre- and posttest setting. Focusing on work attitudes as an equal and essential part of a vocational program is one way in which teachers can help students realize their employment ambitions. (MN)
