EVOC 503 WA2
Work Study Contract

Specific Information and Criteria

OBJECTIVE - Each EVOC 503 scholar will develop, a Work Study Contract, in accordance with the six criteria indicated below, for a specific student in a course that he/she might teach or is presently teaching.

RATIONALE - Supervised work experience done in conjuction with a school based program of study can be very beneficial for vocational students. In order for the student to realize the maximum value of the work experience, it is necessary to coordinate what happens on the job with what is happening in school. This requires the development of a carefully worded work experience contract that will provide a sound basis for required coordination.

CRITERIA - It is expected that each scholar will:

  1. Comply with all of the General Criteria for Written Assignments.

  2. Develop an "Work Experience Contract" for a particular student. The contract should not be more than 1 page (typewritten or word processed).

    NOTE: If a specific format for an Individual Work Study Contract is already prescribed in the environment in which you instruct, you may simply use that format to prepare your contract as long as items 3, 4, 5 and 6 (below) are addressed.

  3. Include specific information in the contract about what the STUDENT is expected to do.

  4. Include specific information in the contract about what the EMPLOYER is expected to do.

  5. Include specific information in the contract about what the INSTRUCTOR is expected to do

  6. On the cover memo (see #1 above) indicate and briefly describe at least one specific resource from which additional information about work study programs can be obtained.

RESOURCES - Solicit information from someone who has actually been involved with a work study program. Visit the library and/or use an online search engine to look for information on "work study." Take a look at Fred Fudrucker's WA2 Example to see what a correctly formatted WA2 Work Study Contract should look like.

One point is associated with each of the six criteria listed above.

This assignment may be submitted via e-mail, posted on a Web site or turned in as a hard copy document. Under all circumstances it should be completed on or before the date indicated on the EVOC 502/3 Class Schedule.
