Samoan Demonstration Program. Final Report for FY 74-75; Volume 2.
Douthit, Dorothy B.; Lung, Julina
The document, second of two volumes, presents sewing instructional materials developed in the third year of the project aimed at disadvantaged Samoans living in Hawaii, 20 years of age or older, unemployed or underemployed, and unable to effectively compete for or maintain jobs. Instructional materials are presented in two sets, with the first a 10 lesson series of instructional activities revolving around 50 basic sewing terms. The acquisition of basic educational skills is stressed through vocabulary development, reading, spelling, and writing lessons with practice sheets. Vocabulary lessons utilize both English and Samoan; other materials are presented in English only. Pre- and post-tests indicate progress, and the material may be taught in a group situation or individually. The second set of instructional materials consists of five information sheets that deal with practical sewing skills, with students moving at their own pace with the help of the instructor or peer tutor. Sewing skills include measuring for dress size, laying and cutting a pattern, hemming a skirt, stitching a straight seam, and hand stitching. The instructional materials were custom designed for the project and a discussion concerning other materials used is included in the first volume of the report. (LH)
