Managing Multiple Roles. Dual Role Homemaker/Wage-Earner. Final Report.
A project was conducted at the Lake Washington Vocational Technical Institute to develop a curriculum and provide a pilot class in the consumer and homemaking program to address the needs of persons with the dual role of homemaker and wage earner. The format chosen for the course was a series of seminars to be conducted on-site at business offices or industries. This document contains the course outline, background materials, and learning activities that an instructor would need to present the course. The first sections of the publication describe the course; give background information about dual-role families and their needs; and provide tips for preparing the course, suggestions for presentation, and an evaluation sheet. The four sessions suggested for the course are then outlined. For each session, learning objectives, background notes, learning activities, and seminar questions are included. A bibliography completes the course guide. (KC)
