Home Economics in Rural Alaska. A Teacher's Resource.
Bomotti, Marty Jordan
This guide suggests teaching topics, activities, and resources for rural home economics teachers in Alaska. It is divided into seven chapters. Six are devoted to each of the main teaching areas in consumer and homemaking education: personal/family relationships, foods/nutrition, housing/home management, consumer education/resource management, child development/parenting, and clothing/textiles. The last chapter includes a variety of resources, especially some unique to Alaska. Each of the first six chapters is further divided into these sections: Teaching Topics (in outline form with major and subconcepts), Teaching Activities (brief descriptions), and Teaching Resources. The resources are grouped according to each of the major concepts. If available and/or necessary, a brief description of the resource, as well as the price, is provided. Sources are given for ordering the materials; addresses are found in the Resources chapter. Chapters on foods/nutrition and clothing/textiles also include a number of miscellaneous helps. The Resources chapter is divided into three sections: Student Texts/Reference Books (by area), Addresses (for ordering instructional materials), and Miscellaneous, which contains information about Alaskan resources, including the Rural Student Vocational Program, Alaska Knowledge Base, and Vocational Education Curriculum Resource Center.
