The Learning Site Analysis Form (LSAF) helps teachers and other school staff collaborate with employers to identify opportunities for students to learn at the workplace. This reference guide is designed to help school staff and employers use the LSAF and apply its results to structure experiences that connect classroom learning to the world of work. The LSAF is used to inventory the skills used in a specific job, describe the characteristics of the workplace, and identify applications of academic subjects at work. The guide contains three sections: (1) the "Introduction," which includes discussion on the uses of the LSAF and how often it should be done; (2) "Completing the Learning Site Analysis Form," which discusses sections of the LSAF, the LSAF questions, conversation aids, and tips and reminders; and (3) "Sample Learning Site Analysis Forms" for veterinarian, electrician, fast-food resturant manager, and elementary teacher positions. Contains a glossary and a master copy of the LSAF. (LMI)
