Katimavik Participant's Manual, Book III, Work Skills = Katimavik manuel du participant, cahier III, les techniques de travail.
Crelinsten, Michael, Ed.
Part of the documentation for Katimavik, a nine-month volunteer community service and learning program for 17 to 21-year-old Canadians, the bilingual student manual focuses on the work skills portion of the learning program. The manual includes learning program objectives, trimester guidelines and a checklist for activity participation, optional activities, a resume page on which to maintain a record for future use of Katimavik activities, specific work skill study topics, and practical work skill guidelines. The manual outlines learning program objectives: developing awareness and ability in a variety of work skills through on-the-job training and experience, developing an understanding of the world of work in relation to possibilities and opportunities after Katimavik, and understanding the work skills and job-training elements of other learning programs and the entire Katimavik experience. The manual examines aspects of work skills including creating work (innovation and entrepreneurship), appropriate and inappropriate work, generic work skills, basic power of change, experience and reflection, practice, learning from mistakes, persistence, self-knowledge, and perspective. The manual also provides diagrammed instructions for ladder use and safety, interior residence maintenance, chain saw operation, wood stove installation, and basic repair of faucets, electric plugs, windows, wallboard, and plaster.
