Exploration of Home Economics Occupations; Home and Family Education: 6775.01.
Benson, Pauline; Estrada, Rosa J.
The course, for use at the junior high school level, explores employment possibilities in home economics and related areas. Lists of resource materials, a pretest and posttest, and an extensive, 70-page curriculum guide are appended. The guide explores eight block areas: (1) introduction; (2) homemaking; (3) personal development for careers; (4) child care, guidance, and services; (5) institutional and home management, and supportive services; (6) home furnishings, equipment, and services; (7) clothing management, production, and success; and (8) food management, production, and services. Each block, except the first and third, is introduced by a pyramid diagram showing occupations at entry, skilled, technical, and college-trained levels. For these six blocks the desired behavioral outcome is that students will be able to identify job titles and descriptions at various levels of maturity and evaluate social and economic applications of homemaking roles. Suggested content ideas, learning opportunities, and resources are followed by a list of job titles, descriptions, educational requirements, and remuneration. Block 3 emphasizes personal characteristics relating to employability and finding employment. Suggested content ideas, learning opportunities, and resources are supplemented by personality checklists. (NH)
