Description

This is the first of two Work and You Books in the Easy Reading Career Planning Series. The series is written at a grade 2 to 3 reading level. It helps adults with low literacy or English as Second Language expand their knowledge of occupations and choose an occupational goal. In the Work and You Books, this occupational goal is described as the "best job". This was done to help readers clearly identify their top occupational choice (goal) from among a number of other satisfactory choices. Work and You Book 1: Make Some Job Choices - This workbook uses stories and exercises to help adults with low literacy choose an occupational (job) goal. They will do a brief self-assessment, learn about different jobs and create a list of 1 to 3 jobs to investigate. Work and You Book 2: Decide on a Job - In this workbook, adults with low literacy research and evaluate the short list of jobs they created in Work and You Book 1. In the end they will choose an occupational goal to pursue.
