In the development of the guide, attention was centered on fostering the behavioral objectives delineated for the generally related study aspect of Industrial Cooperative Training (ICT). It has been generally accepted by coordinators and supervisors of ICT programs in Virginia that approximately half of the class time should be devoted to teaching lessons in the generally related instructional areas with the remainder of the time to be spent by the student in learning technical information related to his specific occupational area. The sample lesson plans compiled in the publication should assist the ICT coordinator in developing instructional units for the generally related phase of the ICT One program. It is emphasized that the guide is not designed as a course to be rigidly followed. Ten units including two to six lessons each are outlined: introduction to the ICT program; pre-employment information; employer-employee relations; techniques of learning; on-the-job communications; income tax; you and the American economy; money management and banking; laws, contracts, and you; and safety. Sample lessons are described in terms of objectives, content, and methods of teaching. Transparency masters, handouts, and lists of resource materials are included for most lessons. (Author/EC)
