Abstract:

"Here is a practical, systematic approach any teacher of adults and young adults can use to prepare students for their futures in the workplace." "A recent, widely acclaimed research study conducted by the American Society for Training and Development and the U.S. Department of Labor identified the most valuable skills employers look for in entry-level employees. Motivation to learn, basic skills, communication, teamwork, critical/creative thinking, career development, and leadership top the list. Unfortunately, many school curricula do not adequately prepare students in these skills." "Teaching Workplace Skills offers a powerful tool to teach these skills. The book is not just another theoretical approach to education - it is a practical, easy-to-use system that teachers of any subject area can use to prepare students for their important roles as future employees. After a brief introduction, each chapter in the book discusses one of the skills identified in the ASTD study. Each chapter presents forty classroom strategies teachers can use to develop and reinforce that particular skill in students. With the methods presented here, teachers of any subject can give their students a solid educational foundation and better prepare them to solve problems, make informed judgments, communicate ideas, and work successfully with others."--Jacket.
