Workdays. A Day in the Life of...a Customs Officer.
One of a series of work-based interviews about occupations in Australia, this booklet presents a personal interview with a customs officer about her job. The following questions are answered: what the customs officer does, what she likes about it, what kinds of things are smuggled, how various kinds of drugs and animals are smuggled, and how they are detected. Cartoons are used to enliven the material, and a glossary listing 26 words is included. Although designed to be used in literacy classes with adult new readers, the booklets are also appropriate for use with elementary and secondary students in career exploration and career education.
