An Instructional Program for Employability Orientation.
Osborn, William C.; And Others
Prepared by a group of scientists from an analysis of Work Incentive (WIN) Program goals and a national survey to identify expected enrollee behavior, this 2-part handbook is intended primarily for use by WIN teams in developing an employability training and orientation program for WIN populations but would be useful for work with similar trainees. The goals of the orientation program are to enable the enrollee to: (1) cope with the home environment, (2) realistically assess his/her vocational goals, (3) obtain an appropriate job, and (4) perform successfully within a vocation. Part 1 contains guidelines to be used by program managers in specifying areas to be included in the program, determining enrollee needs, and sequencing instructional units. Part 2 is intended for the classroom instructor and consists of 18 instructional modules, which encompass training topics organized around 51 behavioral objectives and contain from one to nine instructional units per module, tests for evaluating enrollee achievement, and references. The instructional units contain goals, suggested teaching methods and procedures, materials, support material in the form of illustrations and sample student material, and an instructional outline showing the relationship between instructional steps and the skill and knowledge requirements covered in the unit.
