Job Shadowing...Building the Foundation for School-to-Work Transition. Guide for School Coordinators and Teachers.
Partnership for Academic and Career Education, Pendleton, SC.; Anderson School District Five, SC.
Job shadowing is a one-on-one participatory activity that allows an interested student to spend several hours or a day with a host employer or business. Shadowing enables students to gain insight into career goals and see the relevance of their curriculum in the "real world." The booklet, which was developed for use by school coordinators and teachers involved in the job shadowing program of Anderson School District Five in Anderson, South Carolina, contains information about the purpose and components of job shadowing programs. It provides various forms and guidelines used during implementation of a job shadowing program. Expectations of students enrolled in a job shadowing program are listed. The following forms are provided: student job shadowing checklist; job shadowing contract for students and parents; parent/guardian permission form; high school acknowledgment forms; evaluation form; and student assignment form. Four training activities designed to help students have successful job shadowing experiences are presented. The activities, which deal with developing a work ethic, using business etiquette, and placing telephone calls, include tips and learning activities. Job shadowing guidelines for school coordinators and teachers are included. (MN)
