THE TEACHERS WILL COMBINE THESE AREAS INTO PROGRAMS BUILT AROUND THE GENERAL THEME OF HOUSEHOLD MAINTENANCE AND ASSOCIATED WORK ROLES. SOME PROBABLE CONTENT AREAS ARE FOOD PURCHASING AND PREPARATION, FLOOR COVERING, DOOR AND WINDOW MAINTENANCE, FURNITURE MAINTENANCE, AND MUSIC APPRECIATION. THE COUNSELOR AND THE SCHOOL SOCIAL WORKER WILL DIRECT PUBLIC RELATIONS AND PARENT COOPERATION.
