APPROACHES TO USE IN ASSESSING NEEDS FOR, CONTENT OF, AND CERTAIN FACTORS TO BE CONSIDERED IN OFFERING HOME ECONOMICS COURSES PREPARING FOR GAINFUL EMPLOYMENT.
COZINE, JUNE
EDUCATIONAL GUIDELINES AND TECHNIQUES WERE DEVELOPED AND NEEDS ESTABLISHED FOR PLANNING GAINFUL EMPLOYMENT PROGRAMS IN THE FIELD OF HOME ECONOMICS, PARTICULARLY IN THE AREAS OF CHILD CARE AND CLOTHING SERVICES. TWO SEPARATE SURVEYS WERE CONDUCTED. THE FIRST INVOLVED CONTACTS WITH POTENTIAL EMPLOYERS AND OTHER INDIVIDUALS WHO HAD KNOWLEDGE OF THE NEED FOR AND COMPETENCIES EXPECTED FROM CHILD CARE AND CLOTHING SERVICE WORKERS. THE AVAILABILITY AND CHARACTERISTICS OF POTENTIAL WORKERS WERE SEARCHED FOR IN THE SECOND SURVEY BY CONTACTING CERTAIN SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS, GUIDANCE COUNSELORS, AND EMPLOYMENT AND WELFARE AGENCIES. IN ALMOST EVERY CASE THE PERSONS INTERVIEWED INDICATED INTEREST AND NEED FOR THIS TYPE OF SPECIAL TRAINING. STATISTICAL COMPILATIONS ALSO SHOWED THAT EMPLOYMENT WOULD BE AVAILABLE UPON COMPLETION OF SUCH COURSES AND THAT STUDENTS INTERESTED IN TAKING THEM WOULD BE NUMEROUS. AS THE LAST PHASE OF THE PROGRAM, SEVERAL PRELIMINARY DEVELOPMENTAL TASKS WERE DERIVED FOR A CURRICULUM IN THIS AREA INCLUDING--(1) AN INDICATION OF SPECIFIC SKILLS, LEARNING EXPERIENCES, INSTRUCTIONAL RESOURCES, WORK EXPERIENCE STUDY PROGRAMS, AND ADDITIONAL EVALUATION REQUIRED, (2) STUDENT RECRUITING AND SELECTION PLANS, AND (3) AN INITIAL LOOK AT POSSIBLE COURSE CONSTRUCTION.
