The Community Resource Person's Guide for Experience-Based Learning.
Burt, Ruth Fredine; Douglas, Marcia
The booklet is a guide for community resource people who have agreed to share their job experiences with high school students involved in experience-based learning programs. The programs allow students to observe and participate in the daily routines required in careers they may wish to pursue. Resource people can use this booklet to determine how to plan their time with students, evaluate student performance, and deal with problems of poor behavior and attitude. A question and answer section reviews concerns about liability, child labor laws, and how to assure that students' participation is educationally productive. The roles of the community resource person can include supervisor, model, instructor, counselor, and evaluator. The resource person should clearly describe his or her job, define its advantages and disadvantages, and provide the student with meaningful instructional activities related to the job. Students may be involved in either of two types of programs: community explorations, in which students get a brief introduction to a job and its required skills; or student projects, in which they spend up to several months participating in a job routine.
