50 Things Everyone Should Know How to Do

Thanks to a tip from Cliotech (on her blog and on Twitter) I was able to read this interesting post entitled "50 Things Everyone Should Know How to Do." FCS teachers and students will note that several of the items are routinely taught in family and consumer sciences programs - and practiced in FCCLA activities and events - such as:

#4 - Perform CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver
#6 - Do Basic Cooking
#8 - Win or Avoid a Fistfight(well, maybe not the winning, but more the avoiding)
#11 - Handle a Job Interview
#12 - Manage Time
#15- Relocate Living Spaces
#19 - Perform Basic First Aid
#23 - Select Good Produce
#25 - Make a Simple Budget
#28 - Give a Compliment
#29 - Negotiate
#30 - Listen Carefully to Others
#33 - Make a Short, Informative Public Speech
#38 -Make a Good First Impression
#40 - Sew a Button onto Clothing
#43 - Protect Personal Identity Information
#46 - End a Date Politely Without Making Promises
#47 - Remove a Stain
#49 - Hold a Baby (and everything else needed for care of children)

Of course, this list makes some assumptions about basic skills of reading, math, language, etc. There are a few more skills I think I might add to the list -

  • How to be a good team leader or member
  • Make healthy and safe choices for self and family
  • Taking responsibility for your own actions
  • Problem solving and conflict resolution
  • Career planning and goal setting
  • Managing family, career and community responsibilities

What else would you add to this list?
