Taxes Affecting the Worker: Orientation to the World of Work.
Rankin, Lila 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 9th and 10th 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) income tax laws, (2) tax tables, (3) filing a Federal individual income tax return, and (4) filing a State individual income tax return. On completion of the course, the student will be able to list purposes and requirements of filing tax returns, interpret income tax table information, and accurately complete Federal and State individual income tax returns. 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)
