This document contains marketing occupations-related materials to help teachers and parents teach access skills to Missouri junior high and high school special needs students who want to pursue a vocational program in marketing. 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. Competencies for the marketing program area appear next, along with an access skills checklist on which teachers can record student competence in marketing. An occupational glossary follows that checklist. The next section contains marketing-related instructional activities that cover each of the five major areas (math, physical demands and working environment, aptitudes, temperament, and vocational) of Missouri's Vocational Readiness Inventory. Teacher and student worksheets and their answers are included. The next seven sections are instructional modules on setting up a school store or classroom store using basic marketing principles; communicating effectively with employers, coworkers, and the public; acceptable social behaviors; acceptable social and work behaviors; minimal personal hygiene and grooming; first aid principles; and identifying colors and using the color wheel. The modules include task analysis sheets and directions for instruction. The document concludes with a four-item resource list. (CML)
