A TEACHERS GUIDE--HOMEMAKING EDUCATION FOR MIGRATORY FARM CHILDREN.
KRADEL, SARA F.; THOMPSON, JAMES N.
PROGRAMS ARE DIVIDED INTO THREE CATEGORIES--CHILDREN UP TO 10, CHILDREN 10 TO 16 (17 FOR BOYS), AND ADULTS. EACH CATEGORY CONSIDERS BOYS AND GIRLS SPEARATELY. THE OBJECTIVES OF THE COURSES FOR GIRLS AND WOMEN ARE TO HELP THEM ACHIEVE SATISFACTION THROUGH MAKING THE MOST OF WHAT THEY HAVE ON HAND, TO HELP THEM BECOME BETTER CITIZENS BY LEARNING ABOUT THE COMMUNITY AND RESOURCES THAT ARE AVAILABLE FOR THEIR USE, TO DEVELOP SKILLS THAT WILL LEAD TO BETTER HABITS OF HEALTH AND LIVING, AND TO ENCOURAGE DEVELOPMENT OF HABITS AND ATTITUDES THAT WILL ENABLE THEM TO BECOME BETTER HOME AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS. OBJECTIVES OF THE COURSES FOR BOYS AND MEN ARE SIMILAR TO THE ABOVE, BUT THEY INCLUDE--THE DEVELOPMENT OF RESOURCEFULNESS IN SELECTING, BUYING, AND USING MATERIALS AND SERVICES, THE DEVELOPMENT OF SAFE WORKING HABITS, THE EXPLORATION OF COMMUNITY RESOURCES FOR EDUCATIONAL AND VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE, AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF SELF-CONFIDENCE. UNITS FOR THE GIRLS ARE ON HOUSEKEEPING, COOKING, SEWING, GARDENING, MONEY MANAGEMENT, PRENATAL CARE, AND CHILD CARE. UNITS FOR BOYS AND MEN ARE ON HOME MECHANICS, SAFETY, AND FIRST AID. MINIMUM EQUIPMENT, MATERIALS, CONSTRUCTION PLANS, AND REFERENCE MATERIALS ARE SUGGESTED FOR EACH AREA.
