Teacher's Guide for Home Economics Curriculum Competency Based Modules for Integrating Basic Skills in Reading, Writing, and Mathematics.
Crabtree, Myrna P.; Maltby, Carolyn T.
This teacher's guide is designed to encourage home economics teachers to plan and implement units of study that will facilitate student competency development in home economics content areas as well as in basic skills. It is intended to assist teachers in the effective use of "Home Economics Curriculum Competency Based Modules in Reading, Writing, and Mathematis," training materials developed in Florida. The guide takes teachers step-by-step through the components of the modules, and explains in a question-and-answer format what each component is intended to convey to students and how to use it to prepare units for classroom teaching. The components are the following: contents, glossary, matrices for selected courses, competency grid for selected courses, standards and skills, concepts and subconcepts, competencies, terminal-performance objectives, learning activities, instructional aides, pretests and posttests, instructional resources, and selected references. The final part of the teacher's guide presents a step-by-step method for developing additional basic skills modules beyond those contained in the original publication. Topics covered are the following: child development, family living, textiles and clothing, foods and nutrition, housing and home furnishings, and family economics. (KC)
