Kister, Joanna; And Others
This resource guide provides those teaching the Family Relations course of the Ohio Work and Family Life Program an overview of the course content, teacher background information, learning activities, and assessment ideas. It has one teaching module for each process competency and each content competency in the Family Relations and Process Competency units of the Occupational Competency Analysis Profile (OCAP). These modules appear in this guide in the same order in which the competencies are listed in the OCAP. The learning activities are written from the students' perspective, but teacher notes are included to assist teachers in conducting activities. The four process modules are as follows: managing work and family responsibilities, solving personal and family problems, relating to others, and assuming a leadership role. The eight content modules cover the following subjects: analyzing the significance of families; nurturing human development; forming one's own family; building and maintaining healthy family relationships; developing family communication patterns; dealing with stress, conflicts, and crises; managing work and family roles and responsibilities; and analyzing social forces affecting families. Each module consists of these components: module overview, including practical problem, process competency, competency builders, and supporting concepts; teacher background information with rationale, background, and list of references; learning activities; assessment (paper and pencil, classroom experiences, and application to real-life settings); and handouts.
