Each of the 12 units follows a uniform format that includes the following: perennial problem (one faced over and over by successive generations of families); practical problem (the organizing scheme for how content is to be selected); learner outcomes (types of learning students could be expected to accomplish; include content and process); supporting concepts (indicate the possible direction for students and teacher to take; major topics or concerns that could be included in the unit); resources used to develop the unit or additional or background information); background information; Kansas Quality Performance Accreditation Student Outcomes; teaching-learning interaction (strategies to use to help students through the practical problem-solving process and apply the process skills); debriefing (questions for students to assist them in summarizing content and process skills); and assessment. Transparency masters and handouts are provided. The 12 units cover the following topics: life management skills for work and family; multiple roles of individuals; work and family issues in the family; work and family issues in the workplace; family and work conflicts; solving family and workplace problems; communication in the home and workplace; household management; child care responsibilities; time management; financial management; and stress management.
