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 household textiles maintenance. It is designed for use with various types of learners such as the handicapped, slow-learners, high school students in grades 9-12, and adults including senior citizens. Focusing on the specific job title of furnishing and housing maintenance worker, seven competencies are listed with corresponding student behavioral objectives, teaching strategies, and teaching resources (curriculum materials, businesses, people, books, etc.). An assessment section contains pre- and posttests and a performance instrument, with answer keys. Appended are forty learner information sheets (worksheets, evaluation forms) and nine teacher information sheets (activity guides, answer sheets) referenced to specific teaching strategies. 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)
