At-Risk Students in Work and Family Studies.

This manual is designed to help work and family studies teachers meet the needs of students who are at risk. It uses a systematic approach to adapting the learning environment that consists of an intervention checklist and intervention strategies. The manual is divided into two general sections: Common Skills Area and Applied Skills Areas. The Common Skills Areas presents potentially needed skills that cross all applied areas. The Applied Skills section is divided into the six content-specific areas found in work and family studies classes: clothing and textiles, consumer education, career exploration, child development and parenting, foods and nutrition, and housing. Each applied area has three subsections: a checklist, a list of suggested interventions, and a list of suggested resources. Each checklist is divided into two columns. The left column lists the "characteristics of setting" that may be found in a classroom; the right column indicates the "student's present performance level" for that characteristic. When an at-risk student enters a class, the referring teacher, student, or parent indicates for each skill listed whether the students has mastered, is working on, or is unable to perform the skill. The receiving teacher indicates classroom characteristics that will be required of the student. If mismatches are found, the teacher selects an appropriate intervention strategy from the list that follows. Suggested resources are listed after the interventions. (YLB)
