Johnson, James L.
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) job opportunities in the community, (2) information about jobs in the community, and (3) preparation for the job. Objectives of the course include the analysis of employment situations, as well as education, abilities, and experience in terms of job requirements and employer expectations. 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 aduiovisual aids. The final section offers student materials which include a variety of supportive classroom materials. (MW)
