Balancing Work and Family. A Working Curriculum To Assist Vocational Parent and Family Educators in Designing and Delivering Employer-Sponsored Work and Family Seminars.
Burns, Mary Dooley; And Others
This curriculum guide was developed to help vocational teachers and family educators to design and deliver employer-sponsored seminars for employees as well as community-based adult education programs. The curriculum is intended to help working parents improve their ability to meet their personal wants and needs as well as the demands of their employers and families. The curriculum consists of six units that cover the following topics: (1) introduction and teaching/marketing notes; (2) exploring work-family issues; (3) managing the work-family; (4) strengthening the individual and the family; (5) working and parenting; and (6) background material and professional reading (153 references). Units include handouts, articles, exercises, and questionnaires. The curriculum guide also includes a marketing notebook to assist vocational consumer and family education coordinators in marketing work and family seminars. The notebook addresses four topics: identifying clientele; tracking contacts; connecting, exploring, promoting, and enabling; and facilitating seminars. Six appendixes contain promotional communication samples, recordkeeping forms, transparency masters, program design aids, worksheets and promotional flyers, and an instructor guidebook and instructor agreements.
