Apprenticeship Preparation. Instructor's Guide (Revised Edition for Publication). Workplace Education. Project ALERT.
Ruetz, Nancy; Jarvis, Mary; Sinclair, Irene
This instructor's guide was used to help instructors present a course in test-taking skills and five areas that are tested in a standardized test used for apprenticeship screening at many manufacturing companies. The course description lists target audience, general objective, and typical results observed. The rationale for the whole language approach is presented. The next section gives instructors basic information related to providing successful educational programs in a workplace setting, an instructor's lexicon of strategies and principles that can be used in teaching, instructor's role and responsibilities, and course objectives. An explanation of lesson format lists six parts of the template used to design the lessons--understanding/outcome, materials, demonstration, exercise/engagement, workplace application, and evaluation/comments. A sample template and explanation of each part follows. A section on planning and scheduling deals with time requirements, class size, expected outcomes, prerequisites, and suggested timing for each lesson. Lessons are organized into the following categories: verbal reasoning, numerical reasoning, abstract reasoning, mechanical reasoning, space relations, test-taking, and optional lessons. (Contains 12 references and a glossary of 68 terms.) (KC)
