The Social Contribution of Work. A Career Education Resource Guide. Minnesota Guidance Series. Learning Opportunities Package E.
Antholz, Mary B.; And Others
The five enabling objectives and related learning experiences presented in this learning package help the student to examine his own abilities and attitudes for ways in which he can contribute to society through his work, help foster in him a realization of the value and importance of work performed at all levels, and encourage him to use his vocational abilities to meet the needs for change which confront society. The student objectives are: (1) To identify the social contribution of workers at different socioeconomic levels, (2) to identify ways in which society is benefited by the willingness of individuals to utilize their abilities in vocational tasks, (3) to give examples of ways in which business and labor organizations operate on the principle of private interest versus social responsibility, (4) to describe the personal values and the social contributions of participation in community affairs as part of one's career, and (5) to describe how work in America may help to overcome the social problems threatening mankind. This package is one of a series developed for use at the high school level and may be implemented through the traditional subject areas or taught by teachers and/or counselors as self-contained mini-courses or group guidance units. Activities related to the enabling objectives are appended. (TA)
