Information is provided concerning the structure and objectives of work study programs as well as the required competencies and responsibilities of the teacher-coordinator. Guidelines are included for setting up a new program, for organizing the classroom for program instruction, and for developing a record system, a school-public information plan, and a system to interview prospective employers. Program operation is defined in terms of legal requirements, employment limitations, and time allocation for the teacher-coordinator's duties. Further guidelines for conducting the program specify means of maintaining effective relations and suggestions for the substitute teacher.
