Occupational Home Economics Education Series. Securing Employment. Competency Based Teaching Module.
Lowe, Phyllis; And Others
This module, one of ten competency based modules developed for vocational teachers, focuses on securing employment in home economics. It is designed for a variety of levels of learners (secondary, postsecondary, adult) in both school and nonschool educational settings. Five competencies to be developed with this module deal with the meaning of work; availability of jobs that use home economics skills; job application procedures; laws, regulations, and policies that affect workers; and interpersonal relationships on the job. Student behavioral objectives, teaching strategies, and teaching resources, (books, audiovisual aids, etc.) are listed for each competency. In an assessment section are pre- and posttests and a performance instrument with answer keys. Appended are seventy-two learner information sheets (forms, fact sheets, work sheets) and ten teacher information sheets (fact sheets, reference lists) keyed to specific teaching strategies in this module. A separate resource section lists books, periodicals, curriculum materials, pamphlets, films, filmstrips, tapes, kits, transparencies, slides, games, etc. Introductory material includes background on the development and field testing of the module plus rationale and directions for use of the module. (It is suggested that this module be used in conjunction with or prior to each of the other modules in this series--see note.) (JH)
