Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Instructional Materials Lab.; Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Vocational Education.
These materials for the curriculum area of coordinating work and family comprise one of six such packages that are part of the Ohio Vocational Consumer/Homemaking Curriculum Guide. The curriculum area or perennial problem, expressed in the title of this document, is divided into two practical problems, i.e., what to do (1) regarding provision of an economic base; and (2) regarding achievement of a balance in the family and career life style. These two topics are further categorized into five concerns regarding: (1) income procurement; (2) management of economic resources; (3) effects of family on work; (4) effects of work on family; and (5) interaction between family and work. Thirty-seven concepts on modules are developed within these concerns. The format for each module is as follows: code, perennial problem, practical problem, concern/concept, homemaking skills (listing of various skills needed by the homemaker as related to the developed concepts), and a chart relating process skills (steps of practical reasoning), concepts (further breakdown of the topic), and strategies (information and activities that facilitate the teaching/learning of the concepts). In some cases, specific resources are attached; otherwise, teachers may choose their own resources based upon availability and appropriateness to individual classrooms. (YLB)
