National Child Labor Committee, New York, NY.
This manual is intended to assist teacher-coordinators in presenting the cooperative education story and recruiting appropriate work stations for cooperative education students. It consists of three sections. Discussed in the first section are such techniques for presenting cooperative education to the community of employers as stage setting and advance fanfare. The second section (1) provides ideas for presenting the cooperative education story to employer groups in the public and private sectors in order to build their support of and commitment to participation in cooperative education, (2) discusses how to build on the foundation of good will and interest developed by the activities covered in the first section, and (3) provides ideas on using a presentation to a group of potential employers as a way of making contacts leading to presentations to individual employers. Covered in the final section are techniques for presenting information about the benefits of cooperative education to individual employers in a manner that incorporates techniques for obtaining specific job commitments. Suggestions on the who, what, and how for such a meeting are included. (MN)
