    ? Understand the importance of appearance in the classroom and

    work environment

    ? Display appropriate dress according to chosen career fields

    ? Have a groomed and neat appearance

    ? Practice good personal hygiene which includes bathing, using

    deodorant, and practicing oral cleaning habits

    administration, and customers of the institute

EQUIPMENT AND MATERIALS:

     Module 4 Appearance

MODULE OVERVIEW:

Appearance deals with every aspect of how we perceive an individual. In an instant, we

    form opinions about a person based on that individual’s appearance, smell, cleanliness,

    and mannerisms. Those brief seconds define how we treat others or are treated by

    others. Likewise, our appearance is a direct reflection of the environment in which we

    were raised (i.e. a reflection upon our parents and families). Through our actions and

    appearance, others may form a lasting, and sometimes detrimental, impression of us

    that we may never overcome. In this module, students will learn the importance of their

    appearance and how it may affect their peer relationships and productivity.

    APPEARANCE

One’s appearance is directly related to the career field in which they work. True or false?

    Let’s see – would you expect your female automobile mechanic to have grease under

    her nails and smell of gasoline or diesel fuel? Of course. Would you expect the female

    teller at the bank you use to have grease under her nails and smell of gasoline or diesel

    fuel? Probably not. Would you expect your female automobile mechanic to work in

    high heels and a dress? Not likely. In an automobile service department, the smell of

    gasoline, diesel fuel, and oil are accepted odors that most of us expect and would not

    find offensive in that setting. You would expect the mechanic to be dressed safely for

    work which would not include heels that she could trip in or a dress which could expose

    her skin to harsh and/or hot chemicals. However, in a bank you would not expect the

    person that is greeting the public and handling money to have a strong odor or dirty

    nails; you very well might find her offensive. What’s the difference?

Depending on the career field, acceptable appearances may vary, as in the example

    above. However, regardless of your job, there is no excuse for not being groomed,

    being neat, practicing good personal hygiene, or using correct and polite behavior. A

    lack of attention on your part in any of these areas can affect your job and/or your

    business.

For your program, the proper classroom/lab attire is:

    ________________________________

    ________________________________

    ________________________________

    ________________________________

A person who is groomed and neat in appearance has cleaned and combed hair that is

    styled appropriately for the job or class. Clothes are pressed, shirttails tucked in,

    shoelaces tied, and so on. Stockings are run-free, and shoe heels are appropriate for

    the job or class. Make-up and cologne are tastefully applied without being overbearing.

    Nails are clean and manicured and are an appropriate length for the classroom or lab.

The practice of good personal hygiene is a must. Daily bathing, especially in our region

    of the country, is a necessity. Body perspiration causes odors that can be very

    offensive to others. The heat and humidity we experience in the South compounds this

    problem. The use of a deodorant and antiperspirant is only effective as long as the

    body is clean and free of dirt and sweat. Likewise, good oral hygiene and brushing and

    flossing daily aid in the prevention of bad breath, cavities, and gum disease. Be

    sensitive to others around you by taking care of yourself and your body’s needs.

Correct and polite behavior is the acceptable conduct for class or a job. It shows

    respect for oneself as well as others. Acceptable behavior may include:

? Not interrupting others while they are talking;

    ? Not carrying on side conversations while someone is talking;

    ? Considering other’s feelings and concerns when making decisions or comments;

    ? Being respectful of the instructor and classmates;

    ? Avoiding arguments and disagreements;

    ? Providing assistance when asked;

    ? Using terms such as ―please‖ and ―thank you.‖

    Module 4 Activity 1 APPEARANCE

Activity: Rate Your Behavior

Materials Needed: Handouts/Transparency: Rate Your Behavior, Rate My Behavior,

    pen or pencil

Directions: Distribute the "Rate Your Behavior" handout. Have students spend

    a few minutes completing the handout. Then have students pair up

    with another student in class. Distribute the "Rate My Behavior"

    handout. Have students rate the behavior of their partners by what

    the partners have witnessed in the classroom in the past few class

    sessions. Once completed, have the two students discuss with one

    another how the other has perceived him/her. Explain to students

    that how we perceive ourselves may not be how others perceive us.

    It is important to recognize how we come across to others and then

    modify our behavior or appearance accordingly.
