Home Economics Career Preparation Handbook.
McCuiston, Wendy; Stevens, Sarah; Mathieson, Mary
This handbook is designed to help secondary education teachers in Texas to conduct courses in a broad range of occupationally-specific training options in home economics. These programs usually include general related instruction, specific related instruction, and work-based instruction for careers in home economics areas. The handbook is divided into three sections. The first section contains information and guidelines, including an overview of home economics career preparation, terms, career concentrations, facilities, policies and standards, funding, wage and labor information, transportation, insurance, and teacher certification. The second section provides information on managing home economics occupationally-specific programs, including: (1) roles and responsibilities; (2) student recruitment, enrollment, attendance, and transition; (3) training stations; (4) documentation; (5) public relations; (6) student leadership organizations; (7) advisory committees; (8) classroom management; and (9) end of year activities and future planning. The final section provides sample tools for classroom management, such as work-based-training report forms, work-based training coordination, evaluations, student portfolios and profile information, correspondence, certificates, brochures, and business cards. The guide is based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for Home Economics Education. (KC)
