Work and Family Life: Middle School Content Competencies.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Career-Technical and Adult Education.
This document, which lists the middle school content competencies for the Work and Family Studies curriculum within Family and Consumer Sciences in Ohio, is intended to help middle school students develop self-responsibility and competence dealing with the practical problems of early adolescence. (Career awareness and career choice options are important for early adolescents who are in the beginning stages of career planning, and Work and Family Life classes at the middle school level help students make decisions about career choices by exploring career options in the context of personal interests, personal skills, and family life goals.) Each of the 7 units include expectations, competencies and key indicators, sample scenarios, sample guiding questions, National Standards for Family and Consumer Sciences Education Competency connections, and Core Integrated Academic and Technical Competency (ITAC) connections. The Core ITAC competencies are the critical connection between Work and Family Life programs and all other programs in Career-Technical and Adult Education in Ohio. The 7 units are as follows: (1) process; (2) career, community, and family connections; (3) consumer and family resources; (4) family; (5) interpersonal relationships; (6) nutrition and wellness; and (7) parenting.
