Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation, Inc., Hartford, CT.; Southern Illinois Univ., Carbondale.
This competency-based secondary learning guide on applying consumer and homemaking skills to jobs and careers 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. The following competencies are addressed: (1) assess own qualifications concerning job requirements and personal preferences; (2) describe characteristics that are necessary to get and hold a job; (3) identify and relate homemaking skills to specific jobs and careers that apply to paid employment; and (4) demonstrate the procedures for locating and applying for a job. Twenty-eight supplements contain information and activity sheets on the following: job values, accomplishments, fastest growing occupations, employers' expectations, home and family roles, at-home businesses, getting job information, letters of application and cover letters, resumes, interviewing, and testing. A bibliography contains 18 resources. (KC)
