Summary

Using data gathered from citizens in six Maryland counties, this teacher's handbook was developed to convert research findings into usable materials for the study of work values in secondary schools. The purpose of the handbook is to expose the student to various work attitudes, their sources, and their relationship to occupational choice and adjustment in an objective manner. This handbook consists of three chapters, and each is preceeded by (1) a set of questions as preorganizers for the teachers, and (2) suggested concepts for study with the students. Chapter 1 describes the development of an instrument measuring values associated with work; chapter 2 describes the comparative study between vocational and non-vocational high school seniors, parents, and teachers on selected work values; chapter 3 explains the differences of attitudes toward work between groups of students categorized on the basis of parental occupations. The appendix includes the Maryland Work Value Inventory (MWVI) and a key which identifies each item in terms of which work value scale it evaluates. Suggested strategies for use of the handbook are included in the introductory material. (Author/BM)
