Looney, Era; Morgan, Samuel D.
Designed for use in a self-paced, open-entry/open-exit vocational training program in clothing services and machine repair, this curriculum guide is one of six for teachers of adult women offenders from a correctional institution. Module topic outlines presented on fourteen topics: fashion, characteristics of fibers and fabrics, custom dressmaking, threading power sewing machines, using power machines, cleaning and oiling power sewing machines, adjusting machine stitching, tailoring techniques, pattern drafting, a custom sewing business, merchandising jobs in clothing services; constructing and installing window treatments, window treatment jobs, and the client's home. For each topical area the concept, performance objectives, generalizations, occupational competencies, suggested learning activities, and criterion-referenced measures are listed. The training plan outlined suggests time periods for each topic within a six-month program. A job description and career ladder are included. Five prototype individualized learning packages for student use are appended. (The final report of the project to develop and field test the six guides is CE 017 808). (Author/JH)
