Housing Curriculum Guide, Grades 6-12 and Adult. Bulletin No. 1680.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge. Div. of Vocational Education.
This curriculum guide presents concepts related to housing that could aid in decision-making about housing, improving the environment in homes, and preparing students to meet housing needs as they occur throughout life. It is intended to be used by teachers in Louisiana who plan individual units to meet the needs of their students on various levels. Concepts and sub-concepts related to housing as it might be taught in home economics programs are arranged at the beginning of the guide into a conceptual framework to show the relationships among them. Five major conceptual areas are covered in the guide: housing choices, economics of housing, housing management, home planning, and housing trends. These concepts are arranged to be taught on five levels: beginning housing (grades 6-9); housing--home economics I (grades 9-10); housing--home economics II (grades 10-11); housing--semester course (grades 11-12); and housing--modules (grades 12 and adult). From this conceptual framework, a scope and sequence outline is provided for each level. For the concepts on each level, topics, objectives, content areas, learning activities, evaluation experiences, and teaching resources are suggested. Also included are activities for Future Homemakers of America (FHA) related to the various topics. (KC)
