Arkansas Univ., Fayetteville. Dept. of Vocational Education.
This curriculum guide, which is a product of an Arkansas project to develop employability services for displaced homemakers and others, is organized in a module format. The first section of the guide contains suggestions for teachers in organizing classes. An introduction to using the module format is given in that section with a topic outline of content. Nineteen modules follow, arranged in two divisions of pre-employability skills and personal resource management offerings. Pre-employment curriculum units cover such topics as needs assessment, interest inventories, assertiveness, responsibility, appearance, locating jobs, job applications and interviews, and managing a job. The personal resources management units cover areas of money and time management, education, skills, creativity, coping with stress, family cooperation, decision making, communication, and personal contact networks. Each module contains instructions to teacher, instructional objectives, evaluation procedures, learning activities, subject matter, and supplementary materials. Appendixes to the document contain a list of participants in the Homemakers in Transition project and samples of an agency information card, a flyer to advertise the program, and a news article. (KC)
