Training Manual: Job and Social Skills. Vocational Strategies for Special Needs Students.
Blanc, Doreen V.
Curriculum materials presented in this Spanish-English guide, one of five developed as part of the vocational strategies project, are intended to provide vocational services to mildly handicapped special needs students mainstreamed into regular high schools. Material is sequentially arranged, emphasizing those skills which a student needs to know initially, and those which become critical as the time of actual employment nears. The first unit, "Your Name and Some Important Things You Should Know," concerns basic knowledge and can be used as early as the first year in high school. Exercises are provided for budgeting time, learning to use public transportation, answering questions, and obtaining a Social Security card. The second unit, "Finding Jobs," covers processes for finding work through the media, the Yellow Pages of the telephone book, the employment ads, and the State employment office. The third unit, "Applying for Jobs," gives students practice in filling out actual job applications and in mastering the job interview. Contents for each of the 11 lessons in the three units include lists of learning objectives and needed materials, notes to the teacher, and copies of student written exercises (in both English and Spanish). A pamphlet on applying for a Social Security card is included. (TA)
