A Guide for the Development of Consumer and Homemaking Education.
Nebraska Univ., Lincoln. Dept. of Home Economics Education.
The impetus for the national conference on consumer and homemaking education which resulted in this guide was provided by Part F of the Vocational Education Amendments of 1968, which recommended the expansion and redirection of consumer and homemaking education. The main body of this guide consists of papers presented by the task force and revised in light of suggestions received at the national meeting and at regional clinics. Topics include: Programs for In-School Youth, Programs for Out-of-School Youth and Adults, Ways of Working with Different Individuals, Agencies, and Institutions to Attain the Intent of the Law, Ancillary Services and Activities to Insure Quality in Homemaking Education Programs, and Evaluation of Programs. Also, four papers dealing with topics of persons to be served in the inter-city, urban, and rural areas, consumer information needs of families, and the school's role in consumer education are appended. Selected references are given. (CH)
