Fass, Sara; Garner, Barbara
Designed for use by General Educational Development (GED) program teachers in GED classrooms, this set of learning materials provide learners with practice in graph and chart reading, calculation, analyzing information, and writing, while they examine the labor market, role of higher education, and economic impact of the GED. Unit 1, The Labor Market, contains these three lessons: What kinds of jobs are out there? What's happening to the jobs that do exist? and Wages. Unit 2, Pursuing Higher Education, has these two lessons: Education and Earnings, and Going to College. Unit 3, What the Research Tells Us, consists of these two units: Policy and the GED, and The Research. Components of each lesson are a list of goals/objectives, materials needed, step-by-step procedures, follow-up activities, and handouts. (YLB)
