Dewald, Margaret R.
Intended to give assistance to the vocational home economics teacher in providing a program of continuing education for out-of-school youths and adults, the programs contained in this handbook are designed to assist participants in their life role as homemaker, wage earner, consumer, and parent. The handbook provides an overview of adult education programs in Occupational Home Economics and the Consumer and Homemaking; makes suggestions relative to program planning, implementation, and evaluation; and the uses of advisory committees. Included are outlines of possible course content and a selected bibliography of resources. Suggested competencies for adult occupational home economics programs in child care, general housework, clothing and textiles, and food services, and consumer and homemaking competencies in consumer education and home management, housing, home furnishings, and decoration, energy management and conservation, gerontology, and parenthood, comprise thirty-five pages of the document. Information is also included on the Young Homemakers of Virginia and on the Virginia Certified Homemakers' Assistants Program. (MEK)
