Personal Development: Orientation to the World of Work.
Nordloh, Mary J.
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) achieving and maintaining a good physical appearance, (2) developing behavior, interests, and attitudes consistent with sex and age, (3) getting along with others on the job, and (4) using leisure time. Grooming, clothing selection and maintenance, handling emotions, dating behavior, making friends, and living by a code of values are some of the student concerns discussed in the unit. 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 mateials which include a variety of supportive classroom materials. (MW)
