This core curriculum, in use at the Homemaker ReEntry Center at Northern Kentucky University, provides three units of materials that teachers can use to help homemakers make the transition to the world of work. The first unit, on personal development, covers such topics such as self-esteem, self-awareness, goal setting, decision making, sex role attitudes, stress management, time management, shyness, assertiveness, personal values, and skill identification and transfer. The second unit focuses on skills and abilities; it includes information on career assessment, career decision making, labor market demands, and evaluation methods. The final unit covers employability skills. It provides information on resumes, references, cover letters, thank you letters, job applications, interviewing skills, barriers to employment, job search processes, job advertisements, job salary guidelines, and employment planning. The three units contain individual lessons that consist of performance objectives, approximate time, materials needed, teacher preparation, learning activities, and evaluation methods. Activities and materials include pretests, games, role-playing, teaching methods, and resources. (KC)
