Exploring Careers in Consumer Homemaking and Related Occupations: A Guide for Teachers.
Threlkeld, Joyce C.
One of 11 guides intended for use at the junior high school level of career exploration, the primary focus of the teacher's guide is on consumer homemaking and the related occupational cluster. Unit one offers an overview of the consumer homemaking field and unit two deals with student self-evaluation. Units three through six investigate four occupational areas: (1) clothing, textiles, and fashion, (2) family and child development, (3) food and nutrition, and (4) housing and home management. Each unit specifies a unit purpose and objectives and includes an outline of unit content, teaching-learning activities, evaluation techniques, and suggested resources. Related instructional materials accompany each unit and include reference lists, transparency masters, sample forms, questionnaires, tests, puzzles, charts and games. The appendix provides additional supportive activities and materials as well as a list of publishers addresses. (MW)
