Lankard, Bettina A.
This learning module is one of a series that teaches the competencies of "Job Search Skills," part of the "Work Skills" package--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.) The following tasks are covered in a series of operational units: using initiative (accepting responsibilities on the job and being willing to perform one's scope of work), using problem-solving techniques (analyzing a problem, identifying and choosing among alternatives, and devising a plan of action), and managing personal responsibilities (managing responsibilities of family living and personal finance). Each operational unit contains some or all of the following: a competency statement, a task statement, a unit title, a performance objective, steps entailed in completing the performance objective, and one or more information sheets.
