Self-Appraisal for Employment: Orientation to the World of Work.
Hill, Jim; Craig, Arthur
The guide is one of a series of 10 units composing an orientation to the world of work course designed expecially 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 (1) setting realistic occupational and life goals, (2) defining and testing interests and investigating related job areas, (3) determining and evaluating mental and physical abilities in terms of job requirements, and (4) analyzing social-personal qualities as they relate to setting and pursuing goals. 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)
