Homemaking. A Reading & Language Workbook.
Mankoski, Linda C.
Developed for use in the academic communication classroom of a middle school for the deaf, this student workbook is designed to reinforce the vocabulary and skills presented by the pre-vocational teacher in three areas of home economics: basic cooking, home care, and basic sewing. Each section contains new word lists, short stories, comprehension quizzes, and student activities. The cooking section is divided into units on things to know before you start cooking; use and care of equipment; measurements and abbreviations; table manners, table setting, and table service; beverages; toast; fruit; quick breads; eggs and simple breakfasts; cookies, sandwiches, and simple desserts; and simple luncheons. The section on home care contains units on the home; cleaning tools; care of the bathroom and bedroom; care of the kitchen; the living room, floors, and rugs; pre-treating clothes, mending, and removing stains; laundry care; and safety. The sewing section includes units on good tools; points for beginners; measurements; kinds of stitches; the sewing machine; and using and taking care of the sewing machine. It is designed to accompany the book "I Care for My Home," by Sandra Stem (ED 130 039). (CT)
