That Extra Dollar in Later Life. Four Courses of Study.
Rabe, Henrietta F.; Meskil, Mildred O.
This handbook is focused directly on training possibilities to meet the dollar needs of older persons. Part I consists of a course of study designed specifically for persons seeking a supplemental income through a small, possibly home-based, business enterprise. Part II suggests a cooperative plan with local agencies or groups, particularly the State Employment Service, for the training of older workers for jobs geared to existing local labor shortages. It includes three suggested courses of study including: 1. A Refresher Course in Stenography and Typewriting (for older women), 2. Home Companion Training, and 3. Streamlined Housekeeping (for Job Training). Each of these courses is complete with (1) suggestions to the director for organizing each course as a part of the adult education program, (2) suggestions to the leader who is employed by the school to conduct the course, and (3) a course of study with suggested methodology, bibliography, etc. (Author/DB)
