Next, we defined employers and employees and the 'non-technical' or 'soft skills' skills need to be successful (being on time; leaving personal issues 'at the door'; friendly; helpful; team player). We had some role-playing scenarios of 'bad' employees and how they could have handled the situation 'better.' Students enjoyed this activity so much that they wanted to create their own scenarios/scripts.
Students are to create a role-playing script where the employer and the employee each have 3 lines. Scripts can be any of the following scenerios:
1. 'good' employers and 'good' employees
2. 'good' employers and 'bad' employees
3. 'bad' employers and 'good' employee
4. 'bad' employers and 'bad' employees
These can be hand-written or typed but we need (2) copies of the script -- identical copies (one for the employee and one for the employer). Next week we will be acting out the scripts and fellow students will have to guess who was good and bad. If this doesn't make sense to you, students will understand!
See you next week!
