An After School Job
- Teenagers and Jobs: Use this slideshow to show people of different ages. For each slide, have the class decide the age of the person. Repeat the slideshow and have the class decide if each person can get a job or not. Is it OK for a baby to get a job? Is it OK for a 6 year old to get a job? Is it OK for a 35 year old to get a job? What is a good age to start working? Do you think it is a good idea for a teenager to get a job? Why or why not? For more ideas on discussing teenagers and jobs, see page 49 in Raising Teens in a New Country, created by brycs.org.
- Part Time vs. Full Time: Use this slideshow to discuss full-time and part-time work. Look at the photo on each slide and identify the job. Count how many hours are scheduled for each day. Total the hours for the week. Teach students that full-time jobs are usually 40 hours per week, and part-time jobs are usually 20 or fewer hours per week. For more activities that prepare learners for the workplace, see the book English for Work.
