Work It Out: A Student Guide.
Klein Independent School District, Spring, TX.; American Vocational Association, Arlington, VA.
This guide contains the "Work It Out" simulation, which is pertinent to a variety of curriculum areas, both academic and vocational. The purpose of "Work It Out" is to introduce the student to work-related problem situations and to promote skills in identifying alternatives when solving problems. Part I discusses use of the simulation, i.e., responding to the various situations that are presented on colored cards to be chosen at random. Preparation of the cards on which the situations are printed is also detailed. Three responding techniques are suggested and described: brainstorming, role playing, and panel discussion. Part II contains the situation cards, which should be cut out, sorted according to color and placed in three separate containers corresponding to the three categories in which the situations take place: "You and Your Boss" (yellow); "You and Your Fellow Worker " (blue); and "You and Your Family and Friends" (green). Lists of the situations are provided. (YLB)
