Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation, Inc., Hartford, CT.; Southern Illinois Univ., Carbondale.
This competency-based secondary learning guide on balancing work and family is part of a series that are adaptations of guides developed for adult consumer and homemaking education programs. The guides provide students with experiences that help them learn to do the following: make decisions; use creative approaches to solve problems; establish personal goals; communicate effectively; and apply management skills to situations faced as an individual, family member, student, and worker. Each learning guide includes the following sections: a general introduction and guidelines for using the material; a checklist for users for advance planning; introduction to the guide; specified competencies, with student outcomes/evaluations, definitions, key ideas, teacher strategies/methods, suggested student activities, sample assessments, and supplementary resources. Five competencies are addressed: identify trends that influence work and family lifestyle choices; define work and family obligations (responsibilities); describe ways work and family affect each other; analyze personal situation to determine areas of needed improvement; and plan management strategies to increase work/school satisfaction and family satisfaction. Thirty-two supplements contain information and activity sheets on the following: attitudes and values, employer supports and benefits, role expectations, stress, the superwoman myth, analyzing priorities, survival tips, short- and long-term goals, and family budget. A bibliography contains 39 items. (YLB)
