There's a Language in Your Career.
Wilkins, Ernest J.; Tamarkin, Toby
A package of supplemental materials for use in junior and senior high schools at all levels of language learning is designed to acquaint students with the concept of a second language as an adjunct career skill. Seven activities, designed to develop the student's career awareness, are to be completed in English, French, German, or Spanish. The activities include analyzing values that relate to job selection, role-simulation of career situations, and minidramas based on cross-cultural situations. A group on-site interview activity designed to show students the availability of careers in their own community that require the use of a second language is included. Two filmstrips that are available to supplement the material present the possible economic advantages of second-language learning and demonstrate the need for cross-cultural understanding. An orientation booklet contains basic information about careers and foreign languages and a detailed teachers' guide suggests strategies for implementing the activities. Some samples of the instructional material are included. (SW)
