Included in the guide are the following items: presentation outline; copy of the National School-to-Work Web site; definitions of work-based learning activities; table detailing the processes used to develop various types of work-based learning activities (including worksheets, employer contact forms, activity sheets, evaluation forms); description of paid and unpaid work-based learning activities and contents of the activity packets used to conduct the activities; description of the program's career exploration field trip and pertinent forms and learning activities; and sample activity packets for a work-based learning program at a newspaper's print shop and preapprenticeship program as an electrician's helper.
