This resource manual is one of the components of "Work Skills," a set of competency-based instructional materials written for low-level readers that prepares students with specific job search and job keeping skills. ("Work Skills" is part of the "Connections" package, which represents a synthesis of significant work on education and employment and presents a coordinated set of resources to assist school administrators, counselors, teachers, and employers in helping students in their school and work transitions.) This resource manual contains an instructor's guide that provides strategies for implementing the "Work Skills" materials and a set of black line masters for all consumable student worksheets. The Instructor's Guide describes the components of "Work Skills": Orientation to the World of Work, Job Search Skills and Work Maturity Skills. Information is provided on the purpose, outcomes, benefits, users, focus, components, use, preparation, distribution, outline, and teacher role for each of the components. Suggestions for teaching each of the modules and supplementary activities are also provided. Student handouts, worksheets, and evaluation checklists are included for duplication/distribution and teacher use. (KC)
