RESEARCH IN HOME ECONOMICS GAINFUL EMPLOYMENT, FIVE PILOT PROJECTS IN MISSISSIPPI, 1965-66. PRELIMINARY REPORT NUMBER 15.
WALL, JAMES E.; WITT, MILDRED R.
PROJECTS FOR TRAINING PERSONS FOR WAGE EARNING OCCUPATIONS REQUIRING HOME ECONOMICS COMPETENCIES WERE CONDUCTED TO OBTAIN DIRECTION AND GUIDELINES FOR SIMILAR CLASSES IN MISSISSIPPI. SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES WERE TO--(1) EXPLORE VARIOUS PROCEDURES FOR ORGANIZING CLASSES IN LOCAL COMMUNITIES, (2) SECURE INFORMATION ON LOCAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES, (3) EXPLORE POSSIBILITIES FOR JOB PLACEMENT AND FOLLOWUP OF TRAINEES, (4) DEVELOP CURRICULUM MATERIALS IN CHILD CARE, CLOTHING, FAMILY, AND FOOD SERVICES, AND (5) PROVIDE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENT TEACHERS TO OBSERVE THESE PROGRAMS. PROGRAMS WERE OFFERED IN FOOD SERVICES, CLOTHING SERVICES, CHILD CARE SERVICES, FAMILY SERVICES, AND ASSISTANT HOMEMAKING SERVICES. THEY WERE SPONSORED BY THE FIVE STATE COLLEGES WITH TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAMS IN HOME ECONOMICS. THE 101 TRAINEES WERE FROM 18 TO 61 YEARS OF AGE, AND INCLUDED PERSONS ALREADY EMPLOYED BUT WANTING TO UPGRADE THEIR SKILLS. CURRICULUM MATERIALS WERE DEVELOPED IN FOUR AREAS. THE PROJECTS INDICATED THAT THE PROGRAM MUST BE FLEXIBLE AND THAT QUALIFIED INSTRUCTORS MUST BE AVAILABLE. THE INVESTIGATOR RECOMMENDED THAT THE CLASSES BE CONTINUED WHERE NEEDED, JOB ANALYSIS SHOULD PRECEDE THE CLASSES, AND WORK EXPERIENCE SHOULD BE REQUIRED. OTHER RECOMMENDATIONS WERE MADE AND GUIDELINES WERE ESTABLISHED. FORMS USED IN THE PROGRAM ARE INCLUDED. (MS)
