How to Keep a Job: Orientation to the World of Work.
Scott, Ernestine; Love, Doris
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 (1) the first days on the job, (2) employer-employee relationships, (3) interpersonal relationships with co-workers, and (4) changing jobs. The course deals with specific problems and the natural fears of the beginner, discussing forms, rules, qualities necessary to get along with employer and co-worker, and changing jobs to meet long-range 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)
