This manual accompanies a four-part videocassette series. Each unit follows a Hispanic man in his quest for a job, focusing on four aspects of the job seeking process, including identifying a job opening, calling about it, the interview, and the first day at work. The series can be used with high beginning to intermediate students. The videotapes are to be used with a separate curriculum guide. This instuctor's guide provides instructors with a complete script of the scenes enacted in the videos and reference sections containing specific vocabulary, functions, and grammatical structures. Each script is followed by a vocabulary list that differentiates between job-related and general terminology. Informal expressions and casual language are exemplified under "idioms," and more formal equivalents are also given. A list of the linguistic functions performed by "Jose" and his companions is provided. Various grammatical structures have been extracted from the videotape conversations and catalogued according to tense. However, because of the focus on competencies, grammar is not emphasized. Each unit ends with five different types of exercises (true/false, sequencing, multiple choice, matching, and paragraph completion) that can be duplicated for student use.
