Workdays. A Day in the Life of...the Family Garage Owner.
One of a series of work-based interviews about occupations in Australia, this booklet presents a personal interview with a service station owner about his job. The following questions are answered: what the garage owner does, why he chose the field of employment, how the business has been run, goals for the future, what he does and doesn't like about it, what the garage owner does during a working week, his co-workers, and the hours. Cartoons are used to enliven the material, and a glossary listing 42 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.
