Hutchinson, Vincent G., Ed.
A selection of original texts is presented as well as extracts from conference reports and other publications in an attempt to provide a wide range of views by home economists working in different sectors of the educational spectrum and widely differing geographical settings. Chapter 1, Concepts of Home Economics Education, includes essays on home economics: a unified field approach; a new concept of household education as a school subject; and focus on home and family. Chapter 2, Research Strategies for Need Identification in Different Cultural Settings, includes a discussion of the "plan your Household" advisory program of the Martha Association in Finland from 1971 to 1974; research in home econonics; and identifying community needs. Other chapters focus on modes of curriculum planning, program formulation, application of educational technology to home economics education, supervision and inservice education for home economics, and home economics and other "helping" professions.
