Homemaking (Personal Improvement and Foods), Course Description.
Silverstein, Idebelle G.; Anderson, Floyd L.
Prepared by an instructor and curriculum development specialist of the Minnesota Work Opportunity Center, this document describes a course designed to aid the dropout and/or hard-core unemployed youth develop skills in personal improvement and foods. The approach focuses on the individual and what he wishes to accomplish. Students who desire to take the course complete an information form which is then used to outline a course of study based on the stated goals. The course is flexible, and content is broken down into small instructional units in order to provide continuing positive reinforcement and to minimize frustration. In addition to the information form, each student completes an accomplishment form at the end of each unit, and both forms are filed in his folder where they are accessible to both the student and instructor. Instructional topics and an annotated bibliography are included for the areas of personal improvement, foods, home management, and child care. Brief descriptions of the Center's instructional areas, a listing of techniques and motivational devices, and two case studies are appended. Related materials are available as VT 011 518-VT 011 533 in this issue. (SB)
