Education and Society, v1 n3 suppl Fall 1988
The 12 activities in this special section of "Education and Society" focus on the connection between education and the world of work. The goals are to help students understand their relationship with the working world, to see the diversity among workers, and to consider such issues as racism and sexism in this context. The activities are divided into three equal sections: elementary school, middle school, and secondary school. The elementary school activities are designed to help students become more aware of job diversity. They comprise the following activity sheets: (1) "Parents at Work"; (2) "Food of All Kinds"; (3) "Whose Job Is This?"; and (4) "The World of Work." The middle and high school activities focus on issues of stereotyping and discrimination, as well as helping students see the relationship between their education and entry into the world of work. The middle school activities comprise the following activity sheets: (5) "What's My Line?"; (6) "Community Jobs"; (7) "What Are Your Job Skills?"; and (8) "Interview Questions--What's Allowed?" The high school activities comprise the following activity sheets: (9) "Your Ideal Employee"; (10) "Planning Ahead"; (11) "Prejudice in the Workplace"; and (12) "Corporations and Schools Working Together."
