Youth for Hire. Instructor's Guide [and] Student Materials. Business Issues in the Classroom. Revised.
Maxey, Phyllis F.
One of a series of secondary level units on business issues, this packet focuses on the relationship between business and young employees. The packet contains a teacher's guide and a student activity section. Within the teacher's guide, an overview of activities, objectives, and time frame precedes summaries of five daily lesson plans. Also included are answer keys to written activities, background readings, and recommendations for using business resource people. In the student section, a review of the present job market and work force is followed by nine learning activities which examine problems of youth employment from the perspectives of both the employee and the business. Two case studies recreate interviews with an angry employer and employee. In simulations, students play an applicant interviewing for a job and an employer assessing the job qualifications of several young applicants. Skill building activities provide practice in chart and graph interpretation and community resource utilization. Readings examine the current unemployment situation, legal rights and restrictions governing working minors, and want ad information. In a supplementary project, students work together to develop strategies for easing various youth employment problems. (LP)
