Workdays. A Day in the Life of...Police Constables.
One of a series of work-based interviews about occupations in Australia, this booklet presents an interview with 13 young women police constables about their jobs. The following questions are answered: what police constables do, what they do on the job, how they handle job stress and relationships, what they do and don't like about it, what kind of training was needed, their co-workers, and how the work contributes to society. Cartoons are used to enliven the material, and a glossary listing 46 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.
