Single Parent/Homemaker and Wage Earner: Techniques for Managing Dual Roles.
Griffin, Wilma Pitts; And Others
This curriculum guide for a course on single parenting was developed for regular consumer and homemaking education classes for secondary students and for classes for adults, out-of-school youth, or single parents. The guide is based upon the essential elements identified for consumer and homemaking education and enacted in the 1985-86 school year in Texas. The guide begins with a summary table of essential elements, competencies, and subcompetencies, with essential elements listed by courses. The competencies and subcompetencies are grouped under four broad concepts that summarize the areas in which both teenage and adult single parents appear to need assistance: managing the dual role; developing parenting skills; reducing stress; and securing adequate child care. The following components are included in the curriculum: title of course; title of broad concept; essential elements; competencies; subcompetencies; concepts and generalizations; objectives; evaluation; learning activities; and teaching/learning activity masters for handouts or transparencies. Appendices include a vocabulary list and 13 references. (KC)
