Product Description
Your students are future employees and employers. They will need to understand what it's like to have a disability, but they also should consider what it's like to have to hire someone with a disability.

This assignment allows students to use real life (employment section of the newspaper --not included) in order to find the jobs. They have to use a bit more skill to think of the accommodations. The assignment ends with thinking jobs that should not allow for different standards.

I used this while teaching The Miracle Worker (Helen Keller's story), but I could totally see it going with Harrison Bergeron. The purpose was not to force students to think a certain way, so it's safe, but it does make them think. Have them work in groups. Maybe each group presents one job. Get the newspapers from your school library or unsuspecting neighbors.

Also good for social studies and a Business Ethics class (assuming those exist). One pager keeps them going for a while, since they need to fins a total of 26 jobs and think of 15 accommodations--don't let them say "same" for each one!
