Missouri Association of Future Homemakers of America, Adviser's Handbook.
Missouri Univ., Columbia. Instructional Materials Lab.; Southwest Missouri State Univ., Springfield.
This guide is designed to aid the advisor for the Future Homemakers of America/Home Economics Related Occupations (FHA/ HERO) in developing a well-organized, creatively integrated, and successful FHA/HERO chapter. The guide is written in a question-and-answer format. Chapter 1 focuses on the benefits of FHA/HERO, how it relates to home economics classes, and its organizational levels. Organizing a FHA/HERO chapter is addressed in chapter 2. Topics covered are coordinating the FHA/HERO community (the adviser, the home economics advisory committee, officers, committees, members, parents) and FHA/HERO procedures (chapter bylaws, finances, publicity). Chapter 3 discusses the planning process and encounter. The focus of the next chapter is planning a program of action, and chapter 5 provides information on state and regional levels. The final chapter describes traditional FHA/HERO ceremonies and rituals. Appendixes, amounting to over one-half of the guide, include a list of resource persons, Missouri regions and schools, sample materials (agenda, letters, unit plan for familiarizing home economics students with the key concepts in FHA/HERO, the planning sheet, the encounter analysis chart, an evaluation checklist, the chapter finance plan, a parliamentary procedure quiz with answers, suggested projects and activities, suggested learning games for classroom and chapter meetings, and a bibliography.
