HIREability: A Work in Progress. Activities to Help Secondary Students Achieve Employability Skills.
Gahris, Cindi; Pfeiffer, Julie
This book provides high school teachers and counselors with activities to promote better work habits and attitudes with their students. The 12 chapters are based on the Employability Occupational Competency Analysis Profile (OCAP). The activities can be used to supplement the teaching of the Employability OCAP. They are not designed to be a complete unit of study, but to add to the activities teachers are already using. The activities are designed to reach different learning styles with an emphasis on career development content. Some are written in the same format as Ohio's proficiency tests and address the skills assessed by the tests to provide students with practice in proficiency skills and with the proficiency format while learning employability skills. Some activities can be used to help students with preparing an Individual Career Plan and a Career Passport. The 12 chapters address the following topics: career development; decision making and problem solving; work ethic; job seeking skills; job retention and career advancement; technology in the workplace; lifelong learning; economic education; balancing work and family; citizenship in the workplace; leadership; and entrepreneurship.
