This material, a tentative guide for the teaching of prevocational homemaking, was compiled in consideration of the needs of industry for trained and semi-trained youths and the needs of the youths themselves for job training. The units included in this guide are as follows: (1) Getting acquainted; (2) Organization and use of equipment; (3) Institutional food preparation and service; (4) Grooming; (5) Clothing; (6) Health; (7) Laundering; (8) Wood finishing and upholstering; (9) Industrial sewing; (10) Household services; and, (11) Job opportunities. It is suggested that the amount of time a student spends on the actual job training units be gauged according to the interest of the student. Also, for maximum job training experiences, the job training units should be reviewed throughout the year. The actual job training units are these: (1) Institutional food preparation and service; (2) Industrial sewing; (3) Laundering; (4) Household services; and, (5) Upholstery and Wood Finishing. Since all of the units are essential to training for job success, each unit must be participated in by all students. (Author/JM)
