Rutkowski, Susie; And Others
This guide, which is intended for individuals involved in planning/operating job clubs for disabled and/or nondisabled junior and senior high school-aged students, contains directions for conducting more than 60 activities in job club settings. The activities are organized into the following seven categories, which have been identified as critical to creating positive work habits and attitudes: self-esteem; communication; job search; interviewing; keeping a job; money management; and independent living. The activities have all been designed to be used with small groups of 6-12 students in weekly sessions lasting 40-50 minutes. Each of the guide's seven sections begins with a brief discussion of why the skill covered in the section is critical to finding and keeping a job. Each activity is outlined on an activity sheet that includes some/all of the following: activity name, purpose, audience, materials required, implementation strategies, issues to be aware of, and length of time. Among the types of activities included are the following: quizzes; paper-and-pencil activities; games; drawing; self-evaluation; group discussion; public speaking; role playing; and simulation of television game shows.
