South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia. Office of Vocational Education.
This guide has been developed in order to help secondary teachers to plan a two-level, performance-based semester course on family life. Each of the levels is organized into units based on competencies. Level 1 covers self-understanding, the family in perspective, interpersonal relations, solutions to crises, community resources, and establishing an independent family unit. Level 2 includes decision making to achieve family goals, resources to achieve goals, consumer decisions and family unity , and parenting decisions. Each level course contains an outline of its major competencies and conceptual framework, and a list of resources. For each of the 10 units of the guide, a competency, performance objectives, performance guides (which help the student work toward achievement of the performance objective), and learning experiences are included, along with suggested resources and teacher evaluation activities.
