Preparation for Employment Curriculum. Teacher's Manual.
New York State Div. for Youth, Albany.
This curriculum was designed to help teachers to prepare youth for employment. It is targeted for youth who are not academically oriented, have a low reading level, and are easily distracted, but it is intended to be flexible enough to challenge academically advanced youth as well. This curriculum was developed to serve as a teacher's manual, a resource book, and a collection of written classroom activities (student workbook). The media section and bibliography serve as resources as does much of the information contained in the lessons. Many lessons are accompanied by student work sheets that can be reproduced. The curriculum is intended to be taught in a group-pace model. The curriculum consists of 10 units, each containing an average of five or six 45-minute lessons, and the course is designed to be taught during a 10-12 week school term. The units cover the following topics: introduction, targeted choice, the job search, communication, applications, the interview, decision making, the new worker, human relations on the job, and looking ahead. Lessons contains an overview, purpose, notes, learning activities, and resources. Extensive lists of media are included in the curriculum. (KC)
