Displaced Homemakers: Vo-Tech Workshop Guide.
Peltier, Wanda Jo
Written for displaced homemaker programs in vocational-technical schools, this curriculum contains material designed so that instructors can prepare student manuals appropriate to almost any educational support situation for displaced homemakers. An overview provides information on special needs groups, curriculum use, and resources and sample publicity materials and intake form. Materials are divided into three categories, which are organized into units. Section and unit titles include Orientation (Preliminaries, History and Role of Women in the Work World), Self-Image (Self-Appreciation, Values Clarification, Decision Making and Practical Problem Solving, Communications), and Training (Assertiveness Training I, Managing Resources--Time and Money, Job Readiness, Assertiveness Training II, Peer Counseling). The unit, Preliminaries, contains a get-acquainted exercise and assessment form. Each of the other units follows this format: unit objective, specific objectives, suggested activities, list of necessary instructional materials, references, information sheet, assignment sheets, unit test with answers, and survey (unit evaluation). Except for Assertiveness Training II, each unit is self-contained and can be used without reference to other units. (YLB)
