Occupational Home Economics Education Series. Consumer Services. Competency Based Teaching Module.
Lowe, Phyllis; And Others
This module, one of ten competency based modules developed for vocational home economics teachers, is based on a job cluster in consumer services. It is designed for a variety of levels (secondary, post-secondary, adult) in both school and non-school settings. Focusing on the specific job title of consumer advisor, eight competencies are listed with corresponding student behavioral objectives, teaching strategies, and teaching resources (books, films, businesses, etc.). An assessment section contains pre- and posttests and an affective instrument with answer keys. Provided in the appendix are 119 learner information sheets (fact sheets, work sheets) and 24 teacher information sheets (fact sheets, activity sheets, discussion topics) referenced to specific teaching strategies in this module. A separate resources section lists books, periodicals, curriculum materials, pamphlets, and audiovisual aids. Introductory material includes background on the development and field testing of the module, a rationale and job description for the occupational area, and directions for teacher use. (It is suggested that the module, Securing Employment in Home Economics Occupations, CE 016 775, be used in conjunction with or prior to the use of this module.) (JH)
