Project Employability: Work Performance Handbook for Special Education Students.
Burrell, Lewis P.; Talarico, Robert L.
The Student Work Performance Handbook is the sixth in a series from Project Employability (Ohio) designed to meet employability needs of trainable and educable mentally retarded high school students. The handbook is organized into five major components: (1) knowledge factors about applying for and securing employment (job sources, job application and interview, self development, payroll/social security/income tax, work accidents/safety, other workers, boss image); (2) skill factors which deal with the student's perception of self as employee and successful worker (budgeting/marketing, communication, transportation, time/leisure time, self help, self care/dress, work/job problem areas, occupatonal terminology); (3) worker attitudes (reality, frustration/tolerance, mood, cooperation, cheerfulness); (4) value factors (space/other, self, work, money, safety, conservation); and (5) the Criterion Awareness Scale to evaluate student readiness in the areas of getting and keeping a job. The handbook is designed as a supplementary resource and includes pre- and posttests, sample forms, illustrations, activities, checklists, and handouts. (SB)
