HOME ECONOMICS, GRADES 7-8-9.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY.
A BROAD INTERPRETATION OF HOME ECONOMICS IS PRESENTED. THIS MAKES POSSIBLE THE ADAPTATION OF MATERIALS TO VARIOUS SITUATIONS AND PREPARES YOUNG PEOPLE FROM DIVERSE BACKGROUNDS FOR A SATISFYING HOME LIFE. THE BASIC PHILOSOPHY IS TO INTEGRATE HUMAN AND MATERIAL RESOURCES AND TO FOCUS THEM ON FAMILY LIVING. THE ACTIVITIES AND PROCEDURES SUGGESTED PROVIDE MANY OPPORTUNITIES FOR PUPILS TO PRACTICE GROUP LIVING IN A SETTING WHICH SIMULATES THAT OF A HOME. THE AREA OF CAREERS DERIVED FROM A STUDY OF HOME ECONOMICS IS ALSO INCLUDED. TECHNOLOGICAL AND SOCIAL CHANGES HAVE AFFECTED THE TRADITIONAL ROLE OF THE HOMEMAKER. THE EMPHASIS HAS MOVED FROM PRODUCTION TO THAT OF THE WISE SELECTION OF GOODS AND SERVICES AND TO THE IMPORTANCE OF GOOD INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS. THE COURSES, PRESENTED IN OUTLINE FORM WITH CONTENT, SUGGESTED ACTIVITIES, AND PROCEDURES, INCLUDE FOODS AND HOME EXPERIENCES, CLOTHING AND HOME EXPERIENCES, CLOTHING ACCESSORIES AND PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT, CHILD CARE AND HOME CARE OF THE SICK, AND HOME ACCESSORIES.
