Decisions about Work. Adolescent Decisions Curriculum.
Brion-Meisels, Steven; And Others
This teacher's manual is one volume of a six volume curriculum for the secondary level, designed to provide a systematic, group-oriented approach to decision-making in areas crucial to adolescent development: work, drug (substance) use and abuse, sexuality and social relationships, people and government, and juvenile law. The decisions about work program combines general job and economic awarness with a focus on specific skill development. Each lesson uses activities, e.g., role play, films, site visits, speakers, handouts and worksheets, and references to develop decision-making and negotiation skills as they relate to finding, getting, and keeping a job. Positive worker role models, work experiences, and career awareness are integrated into the lessons. The program is divided into seven general topics and then further subdivided into 31, sequential 45-minute lessons. The content areas include: Introduction (job interests and exploration); World of Work (job site visits, speakers); Unemployment (concept, economics); Personal Interests and Skills (assessment, exercises, self awareness); Job Hunting Steps (procedures, practice); Personal Data (resume, job hunting skills); and Interpersonal Skills (employer survey, interview, work expectations). A final student assessment and course evaluation complete the manual. (BL)
