Individualized Related Instruction for Entering the World of Work.
Kimbrell, Grady; Vineyard, Ben S.
The field-tested activity manual is intended to improve cooperative education coordinators' relationships with their students by providing an individualized approach that allows the student to participate in planning the area of emphasis for study and activity. Although useful in regularly scheduled classes, it was prepared especially for those students who are a part of work experience programs in which it is impossible to meet regularly as a group. The manual is divided into six units which provide activities and quizzes related to the world of work. Unit 1 discusses the facets of life that provide the means to personal fulfillment and includes activities for analyzing goals. In unit 2, part-time jobs as a career exploration tool are examined. Unit 3 provides application forms and activities related to applying for a job. Employer-employee and co-worker relationships are considered in unit 4, emphasizing the importance of attitudes. Unit 5 deals with job performance and evaluation, while unit six provides self-inventory activities enabling the student to complete a personal career profile analysis. Included are: an attitudinal inventory, values appraisal scale, hobby interests evaluation, people-data-things evaluation, and aptitude tests in vocabulary, mathematics, and clerical skills.
