The work-study guide is the third volume in the advanced level of a career education curriculum for elementary-secondary migrant children. Complementing the secondary level job information text and a workbook about decision making and self-awareness, the work-study guide is designed to accompany work exploration and experience programs. It contains three sections to be used independently. The first involves interviewing workers to obtain information about their jobs or careers. The second is a "shadowing" guide that leads students through a worker shadowing (observing) experience. The third is a guide to a work experience program. Through the work-study guide, students learn where and how to acquire job information and how to organize their self-knowledge and job knowledge to make effective decisions. The volume contains curriculum evaluation pages. (SB)
