LifeWork: A Welfare-to-Work Model Curriculum.
Gee, Mary Kay
This publication provides a model curriculum with a focus on welfare-to-work, school-to-work, and first-time employees. It emphasizes the basic competencies most valued by employers for the current and future domestic and global work force. Section 1 presents an overview of LifeWork, a performance-based transitional program that uses the participants' experiential learning and establishes connections and collaborations among participants, program staff, agencies, and businesses. Curriculum features are listed. Section 2 presents learning objective lists for these areas: environment, person, and job. A course presentation time list details anticipated presentation time for each learning objective. A list of learning objectives for a shorter (40-hour), more intensive course is provided. Section 3 provides supplementary materials: course portfolio and journal suggestions, group discussion questions, and learner log. The LifeWork course consists of three parts: "The Environment,""The Person," and "The Job." These LifeWork course parts are detailed in sections 4-11. Each section correlates learning objectives with suggested ideas, activities, and resources. Handouts provide information and student activities and exercises. Section 12 contains these assessment materials: course mastery checklist and learner and instructor self-assessments. Section 13 provides evaluation materials: midpoint course evaluation, LifeWork program evaluation, focus group evaluation, and instructor observation checklist. (YLB)
