The Working Teenager. For the Working Citizen Module of Introduction to Occupations.
New York State AFL-CIO, Albany.
This curriculum guide was prepared for use in an introductory occupations course required of all New York State students taking a sequence in vocational education. Compiled by a partnership that included organized labor, the curriculum guide is based on New York State law, but the concepts and approaches could be adapted for use in other states. The guide contains five lesson plans on working teenagers. The lessons cover worker rights; employment of minors and working papers; hours, minimum wage, payment of wages, and prohibited occupations; prevailing wage rates; and unemployment benefits and workers' compensation. Lessons contain short case studies, short-answer questions, information outlines, and case problems. A teaching guide at the back of the booklet outlines lessons, provides objectives, suggests activities, and reviews vocabulary. A quiz on the entire unit, with answer key, is included, and a set of transparencies consisting of various claims and application forms, organization charts, office location displays, wage schedules and hours charts, etc., is provided.
