Tabler, Tina M.
This packet is designed to assist teachers and counselors of Adult Basic Education (ABE) and Graduate Equivalent Degree (GED) students to conduct practical individualized and small group workshops geared toward helping ABE students to look for a job. Each session is designed to take approximately three hours and employ the following formats: large group presentations; small group interaction and discussion; large and small group task projects; video-taped presentations; and role-playing scenarios. The five workshop sessions outlined in the guide cover the following topics: communicating with others, understanding salable skills, competing with paperwork (applications and resumes), developing effective interviewing techniques, and planning for action (the job campaign). The packet also contains learning objectives for the workshops, a list of counselors' resources, materials needed, and sample forms to be reproduced and used in the workshop sessions. (KC)
