Powers, Betty C.
Intended for use by teachers at the high school level, this curriculum guide, which is one in a series of guides for consumer and homemaking education in Kentucky, outlines a semester special interest course in clothing management. As the concluding course of a curriculum on this subject which commences on the junior high level in a separate guide (CE 017 498), it covers many of the same areas of instruction as the earlier units. The concepts included are as follow: (1) cultural influences on clothing; (2) art principles of clothing design; (3) the analysis, selection, and buying of clothing for the individual and the family, and the relationship between clothing purchasing and the economy; (4) special clothing care and storage; (5) textile technology; (6) selection and use of sewing equipment; (7) construction of clothing; (8) garment alterations, and (9) career opportunities in the clothing and textile fields. Behavioral objectives are stated in terms of student competencies, and the specific teaching strategies are accompanied by references to outside resources (primarily textbooks) and supporting generalizations. The appendix contains several instructional activities and games on fiber and fabric characteristics. A list of resources is gathered together at the end, including books, periodicals, pamphlets, and filmstrips. (ELG)
