This student activities book is designed to allow students to examine the multiple roles of contemporary dual-earner couples. It examines the concerns of the two-career couple and the sharing of male and female responsibilities as well as certain roles of employed single adults. Intended for use independently or with classroom instruction, this activities book contains eight units. Each has competencies, subcompetencies, and learning activities to develop the competencies in each unit. Questions, puzzles, and case studies are included in the learning activities. The written answers required in some of the activities allow students to improve their spelling and grammar usage. The units cover (1) organizing personal and job responsibilities using basic management skills; (2) sharing household tasks; (3) managing money in a dual-career household; (4) coping with stress; (5) parenting for the gainfully employed parent; (6) planning, selecting, and preparing food to meet the needs of employed homemakers; (7) planning time for leisure; and (8) evaluating factors that affect the attitudes and careers of working couples. Appendixes include answer keys, selected references, and a publisher list. (YLB)
