Choosing an Occupation. Revised. Employability Skills Series.
Kromhout, Ora M.; And Others
This student booklet on choosing an occupation is one of six in the Employability Skills Series, a set of instructional materials designed to teach secondary students and adults the skills involved in getting and keeping a job. The competency-based material is oriented to young adults but written at approximately the fifth-grade reading level. (An instructor's guide is available separately as CE 031 156.) Designed to show the student some ways to find out about himself/herself and about different occupations, the unit focuses on three areas: looking at oneself, exploring occupations, and matching oneself to an occupation. A list of seven knowledge and performance objectives acts as a table of contents. For each objective there are several pages of instructions and some activities for practice. A performance test with performance checklist is provided for each performance objective; a self-test is provided for each knowledge objective. Answer keys are provided for activities and self-tests where needed. These other materials are also given: unit review and glossary. Appendixes include an Occupational Outlook Handbook, Occupations Chart, list of helpful names and addresses, and extra copies of the forms used in the unit. (YLB)
