Take This Job and Keep It!
Take This Job and Keep It teaches as it entertains. Boarder, our star, soon discovers that finding a job is one thing, but keeping it is another. He's not quite sure about a number of things ' expectations, job performance, communication, or even getting to work on time. But he listens, applies what he hears, and grows in the process. And -- he keeps his job! Host Dale Funk keeps things moving as he narrates the story, pulling together the key points of each chapter.
Take This Job does a great job of teaching teens that surviving in the workplace involves the use of social skills that help them manage anger, communicate effectively, respond constructively to criticism and interact appropriately with authority. The curriculum is organized into four, 50-minute classroom sessions. In the classroom students alternate between watching a chapter of the DVD story and in-class exercises. The accompanying Leader's Guide includes instructions for each class, plus reproducible handouts, such as job descriptions, employee manuals, and employee contracts.
