HOMEMAKING IN THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS, A RESOURCE GUIDE FOR CLASSROOM TEACHERS.
SICKLER, SUZANNE
THIS GUIDE PROVIDES BASIC INFORMATION ON ORGANIZATION, OPERATION, CURRICULUM, FACILITIES, AND RESOURCES FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A HOMEMAKING EXPERIENCE-CENTERED PROGRAM IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS. IT MAY BE USED BY A HOMEROOM TEACHER WITH A VISITING HOMEMAKING TEACHER CONSULTANT OR BY A HOMEMAKING TEACHER IN SCHEDULED CLASSES. IT WAS DEVELOPED BY A STATEWIDE ADVISORY COMMITTEE OF HOME ECONOMICS TEACHERS AND STATE SUPERVISORS. THE HOMEMAKING EXPERIENCES, BASED ON CHILDREN'S CHARACTERISTICS AT THE DIFFERENT AGES, ARE GROUPED UNDER FOODS, CLOTHING, FAMILY LIFE, AND HOUSING FOR EACH GRADE LEVEL, KINDERGARTEN THROUGH THE SIXTH GRADE. EACH GROUP OF EXPERIENCES IS ARRANGED IN PARALLEL COLUMNS HEADED BY SOME BASIC UNDERSTANDINGS, SOME SUGGESTED EXPERIENCES, INTEGRATION POSSIBILITIES, AND SOME SUGGESTED RESOURCES. CHARACTERISTICS OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN, THE ELEMENTARY CURRICULUM WITH ITS IMPLICATIONS FOR HOMEMAKING, AND THE SCOPE AND SEQUENCE OF HOMEMAKING CONCEPTS IN THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS ARE LISTED. SAMPLE LESSON PLANS FOR A NUTRITION EXPERIMENT USING ALBINO RATS AND A COLONIAL EXPERIENCE OF MAKING SOAP, AND ADULT AND ELEMENTARY REFERENCES, SOURCES OF MATERIALS AND FILMS ARE INCLUDED. PHOTOGRAPHS SHOW EXPERIENCES SUCH AS ENTERTAINING VISITING LEADERS, SHARING WORK IN FOOD PREPARATION, GRINDING CORN AS THE EARLY INDIANS DID, EXPERIMENTING WITH ANIMALS TO UNDERSTAND HUMAN NUTRITION, AND PRACTICING FAMILY ROLES.
