Teacher's Guide to Transferable Skills. Research and Development Series No. 216.
Abram, Robert E.; And Others
Developed to inform teachers and students of the importance of transferable skills in their daily lives, this teacher's guide contains activities for practice in applying transferable skills in the areas of problem solving, communication, computation, and relationships with others. The activities in the guide are intended for use on either the secondary or postsecondary level and can easily be adapted to match the subject matter being taught. Covered in the individual sections of the guide are the following topics: making school meaningful through transferable skills (making school meaningful, life and change, what recent studies say, and dealing with change); about transferable skills (the definition of transferable skills, the transfer process, the importance of transferable skills, and differences between transfer and transferable skills); guidelines for encouraging transfer (simulations among transfer situations, techniques for problem solving, and identifying important parts of a task); activities for encouraging transfer (getting started, related filmstrip and tape programs, individual activities for encouraging transfer, and an index of the activities); and identifying transferable skills (skill lists and techniques for assessing transferable skills). Concluding the guide is an annotated list of resources on transferable skills and the transfer process. A list of transferable skills is appended, and an audiocassette script is included. (MN)
