Enterprise State Junior Coll., AL.; MacArthur State Technical Coll., Opp, AL.
This curriculum package on team building--the machinery of management for supervisors, auditors, and training instructors has been developed by the Workforce 2000 Partnership, a network of industries and educational institutions that provides training in communication, computation, and creative thinking to employees and supervisors in textile, apparel, and carpet industries at 15 plants in Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. The curriculum guide provides a quick view of all major curriculum components: job title for which the curriculum was developed; general instructional objective; overall time; and a chart which is used by reading across the columns to match the specific instructional objective with the estimated amount of time required, learning activities, resources required, and evaluation method. A closure activity reviews and assesses skills learned and may identify needs for further learning. The lesson plan explains the activities in detail. Handouts, transparencies, and pre- and posttest are provided. This module is designed to teach critical thinking and problem solving skills. Objectives include the following: demonstrate ability to differentiate, sort, and classify information; solve problems and arrive at decisions as a team member in a work setting; identify appropriate workplace and classroom behavior; identify appropriate problem solving strategies; demonstrate ability to apply or transfer skills learned in one job situation to another; identify situations in which action should be preceded by getting prior consent or advice from supervisors of instructor; demonstrate appropriate ethical behavior for work and classroom; demonstrate ability to solve interpersonal conflicts on the job; and identify appropriate behavior, attitudes, and social interaction for keeping a job and getting a promotion.
