Perceptions Concerning Occupational Survival Skills.
Nelson, Robert E.
This volume presents the reports of a series of interrelated studies which were part of a study that developed curriculum materials for teaching occupational survival skills. The first of six sections, Need for Teaching Occupational Survival Skills and Attitudes, discusses the importance of survival skills and describes twelve general topics which were identified as being essential for occupational survival. Section 2, Worker Perceptions of Skills Necessary for Survival in the World of Work, describes a study that identified twenty-seven specific skills workers need to maintain their jobs. The third section presents a study that examined the opinions of cooperative education students and parents concerning the teaching of skills necessary for survival skills in the world of work. Section 4 reports on a study that investigated the opinions of teachers, counselors, and administrators concerning the teaching of occupational survival skills. The fifth section reports on a study that identified teaching strategies which are appropriate for teaching each survival skill. The final study, Differences in Students' Attainment of Occupational Survival Skills and Career Attitude Maturity, focused on the uses of the occupational survival skills materials with three student groups: cooperative education students, special needs students, and Comprehensive Employment and Training Act students.
