The teacher-developed guide attempts to establish a student-centered learning environment for the development of languaging capabilities through information and insights for students about themselves and the world of work. The flexibly arranged materials can be used as a one-semester course or as separate objectives and units within existing language arts courses. The progression of awareness moves through: (1) self-appraisal of traits, interests, skills, and information; (2) communication skills needed to acquire jobs and to perform on them; (3) other skills, attitudes, and relationships needed to acquire and hold jobs; (4) awareness of careers; and (5) relating new learnings to leisure time, consumer behavior, and home and community success. Teachers working in individualized programs will find that the units can be converted to learning activity packages. In this course an effort has been made to relate language to real experiences; students and teachers interact with one another, explore the uses of language, and learn through direct involvement.
