Independent Living: Preparing For a Job
The Independent Living Series was developed to help students prepare for the real-life challenges of getting a job and living on their own. Preparing for a Job provides detailed information about different kinds of jobs, educational requirements, and how students can find their perfect job.
The first section, Job Descriptions, features 28 jobs in 9 different job categories. The practical information tells what each job is like, what kind of education and training are needed, what the average salary is and, to help with planning, the expected growth rate for each job.
The next section, Skills and Interests, gives examples of tests that help students understand what they’re good at and what kind of job is right for them. The Education and Training section explains college degrees and trade schools. It also tells how on the job training, internships, and volunteering can help prepare students for specific jobs.
Follow-up activities include practical application math, basic comprehension questions to reinforce understanding, and practical writing exercises. Some questions ask students to think about the information given and express their opinions and ideas.
The vocabulary section includes a glossary of words and phrases students may not be familiar with plus activities to test understanding of the new words and phrases. These words and phrases are highlighted in bold throughout the text.
