Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Vocational Instructional Materials Lab.
Written for student use in a variety of classrooms, this document covers these skill areas: communicating with others, reading skills, writing skills, and study skills. The material addresses specific skill areas, but is flexible enough to meet student needs in both vocational and academic classes. Each unit, which covers one skill area, begins with an introductory page that includes an introduction, objectives, springboard questions to help students think about the material before working with it, and vocabulary words from the unit. Readings give some brief information that explains or defines the communication skill presented in the unit. Student activities that follow each reading provide a learning activity to practice using information or skills presented in the text reading. The conclusion at the end of each unit summarizes the information presented. At the conclusion of each unit are two sample vocabulary activities. A brief teachers' guide is provided at the end of the document. It describes organization of the material, provides information about specific units, and discusses use of the material in a job skills class. (YLB)
