Access skills are defined as those skills needed to access vocational education programs and be successful in the world of work. An introduction explains this document's relationship to other documents about Missouri vocational education and describes the document's contents. The next seven sections contain competency lists, skills checklists on which teachers can record student competency, and instructional activities relevant to the seven vocations. The activities cover each of the five major areas (math, physical demands and working environment, aptitudes, temperament, and vocational) of Missouri's Vocational Readiness Inventory. Glossaries, tool lists, teacher and student worksheets, and lists of resources are included. The document concludes with nine instructional modules that teach basic safety and first aid; occupational vocabulary,; identification and use of tools; identification of automobile parts; basic operations using decimals and percents; basic operations using fractions; demanding physical movements; driver's test preparation; and how to read scales, dials, and gauges. The modules include task analysis sheets and directions for instruction. (CML)
