Competency Based Curriculum for Prevocational Exploration Consumer and Homemaking.
Reese, Clara; Chenoweth, Roberta
This competency-based prevocational exploration curriculum is designed to provide occupational information and hands-on experiences pertaining to consumer and homemaking occupations to ninth- and tenth-grade students. The curriculum consists of 45 learning pacs, 43 of which cover one service occupation each. Information for each service occupation is provided in this format: career information (job title, duties, where employed, employment outlook, education and training, special qualifications, earnings and additional benefits, working conditions and lifestyles), occupational cluster, occupational family, representative job titles, occupational task, occupational competency, resources and/or materials needed to complete the pac, a list of learning objectives, a list of learning activities, evaluation procedures, student information sheets, and worksheets. The first and last learning pacs (an introduction and a culminating/review lesson) do not include career information. The job titles are divided into five units: child care (foster parent, nursery school attendant, kindergarten teacher), clothing and textiles (demonstrator of sewing techniques, dressmaker, garment cutter), family relations (family caseworker, extension agent, home economist), foods and nutrition (clinical dietitian, food demonstrator, foods magazine editor), and housing (housewares demonstrator, interior decorator, furniture salesperson). Fifteen of the job titles are suggested for inclusion in a core curriculum. (YLB)
