Introduction: Orientation to the World of Work.
Atkins, Oscar T.
The guide is one of a series of 10 units composing an orientation to the world of work course designed especially for disadvantaged and handicapped students in the ninth and tenth grades. It is designed to provide basic and remedial instruction in personal development, math, and language skills while providing information and skills basic or common to employment in all occupations. Topics treated in the course are orientation to school, succeeding in school, and vocational opportunities in high school. The student is made familiar with the physical plant, rules, and schedules, meets the faculty, and investigates curriculum offerings and extra-curricular activities. Safeguarding personal property, study skills and the value of high school offerings are emphasized. Lesson plans present major and supporting concepts and specify performance objectives. Suggested resources are correlated to teaching-learning-evaluation strategies, which are subdivided to meet the separate needs of the disadvantaged and the handicapped. A resource section specifies sources and costs of audiovisual aids. The final section offers student materials which include a variety of supportive classroom materials. (MW)
