RE: 503, WA2, Fournier

The purpose of EVOC 503 WA2 was to prepare a Work Study Contract for one of the students in the Automotive Engine Performance course that I teach. The following six criteria were specified:

  1. Comply with all of the General Criteria for Written Assignments.
  2. Develop a "Work Experience Contract" for a particular student. The contract should not be more than 1 page (typewritten or word processed).
  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.

The following sources of information were used relative to this assignment:

  1. Fournier, Phil - From my own professional experience.
  2. website developed by Tulare County ROP program describes in detail the criteria for developing a successful ďcommunity classroomĒ program for students in an ROP program.)

I believe that the attached proposal meets all six of above listed criteria and respectfully request full credit: one point for meeting each of the above listed criteria.
