Illinois Univ., Urbana. Dept. of Vocational and Technical Education.
This final report contains a fourteen-page narrative and appended materials of phase 1 of an Illinois project to provide up-to-date comprehensive sequential home economics materials for use in grades 6-12. These activities are reported: development of an annotated bibliography of curriculum guides, extensive literature searches related to philosophical issues and futuristic trends and issues in home economics, survey of teachers to determine state-of-the-art of home economics teachers and programs to provide bases for curriculum decisions, review of curriculum models (with subsequent selection of the "Missouri model" for use as a guide), and planning for phases 2 and 3. Appended materials include minutes of project meetings and the state-of-the-art report on vocational home economics in Illinois, which involved a survey of vocational home economics teachers, grades 6-12. This report contains information on development of the instrument, selection of the sample, administration of the instrument, and treatment of the data. These objectives are given: to obtain demographic information about home economics teachers and schools in Illinois and to determine content of home economics programs in the state of Illinois. Eleven tables and the research instruments are provided. (YLB)
