Skills for Life. Teacher's Resource Materials.
Texas Tech Univ., Lubbock. Home Economics Curriculum Center.
Developed through a research process conducted in several phases that explored students' life skills and measured them against skills expected to be needed in the future, this curriculum packet is the first part of a set of teacher's resource materials for teaching life skills. The resource materials set have been developed in eight units which incorporate all the skill categories identified through the research and develpment process. Each unit consists of four or more self-contained modules which can be taught in any sequence and incorporated into a variety of courses. The eight identified skills are: personal development, health and wellness, citizenship, communication, consumer economics, employability, parenting and child care, and balancing work and family. The Skills for Life modules will be sold in packets of five; 10 packets are planned. This first packet in the series contains five modules covering the following topics: self-esteem, acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) awareness and prevention, misdemeanors and felonies, characteristics needed for employment and managing multiple roles. Each module contains descriptive text, teaching strategies, appropriate to different grade levels, learning activities, transparency masters, and answers to learning activities, in a loose-leaf format. The units are designed to be incorporated into home economics or other vocational courses. (KC)
