Careers (A Course of Study). Unit II: How to Start Looking for That Job.
Designed to train special needs students to search for a job in at least five different ways, this set of activities is the second unit in a nine-unit secondary level career course intended to provide handicapped students with the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in the world of work. The unit begins with a pretest and vocabulary checklist. A series of thirteen short readings on such job sources as family and friends, employers, employment agencies, public and private agencies and placement offices, schools, unions classified ads, government agencies, and special youth employment centers are included in the first section along with two activities on evaluating job benefits and working conditions. Section 2 contains three activities on want-ad abbreviations and comprehension, and section 3 contains a sample want-ad response letter and an exercise in writing a similar letter. Activities on using the telephone and the yellow pages and calling about a want-ad are provided in the fourth section. Section 5 contains an activity on computing private employment agency fees. A posttest concludes this unit. (The other eight course units are available separately--see note.) (MN)
