100 Activities for Transition.
This manual describes 100 ways to make a commitment to transition via Individual Transition Goals for students with disabilities. The goals cover five basic transition areas: (1) communication and problem solving; (2) daily living; (3) securing and keeping a job; (4) career awareness; and (5) self-determination. To help meet those objectives, 100 activities are described that correspond to the theme areas. Activities are designed to be completed within a class period, although many can be expanded to several class periods depending on students' needs and the community resources accessed. The manual includes a Job Shadowing Unit that provides tips on setting up a job shadow program involving parents, employers, and students and on evaluating the experience. Information is provided on the legal issues and risks of job shadowing, activities before job shadowing, activities between job shadow experiences, and the students' and employers' role. A resources section includes many samples and fill-in worksheets to illustrate and accompany the 100 transition activities. It also includes forms to complete with information from local community resources, such as contacts at local community colleges, organizations, leisure sites, and employment agencies. A list of Internet addresses for locating career and job information has also been included. (Contains 10 references.) (CR)
