Careers for Bilinguals. Volume One. [Student Workbook].
Oppenheimer, Zelda V.
Focusing on the Hispanic culture, this student workbook is intended to fill the needs of minority groups who have been exposed to non-standard English or foreign language environments and/or who are in need of perfecting their English language skills. It can be used with bilingual or monolingual junior and senior high school students, adults in continuing education, students in alternative schools, and students in correctional institutions. Presented in seven units, the concepts and exercises in this workbook serve as a guide to career awareness, while raising levels of aspiration, and emphasize cognitive and affective learning. The program also offers a guidance process designed to encourage community involvement. All seven units are developed around dialogs, the last two of which are units for the more advanced students. Some of the careers included relate to health services, law enforcement, communications, mass transportation, real estate, law and consumer economics, import-export business, franchises, and foreign service. A number of the exercises show women in key positions. Included also is a student's evaluation booklet which contains six kinds of proficiency tests. A teacher's manual (CE 013 448) accompanies this workbook and contains teaching suggestions, related information, an evaluation guide, and a booklet of illustrations related to the student workbook units. An audio cassette which records the workbook dialogs and selected exercises is also available (see availability note). (Author/BM)
