Curriculum for Parenthood Education.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Bureau of Publications.
A conceptual framework was developed to aid teachers, parents, school administrators, and community and school site planning groups in developing a parenting program appropriate to the local community. Units of study, based on the framework, were developed and field tested in consumer and homemaking education programs in grades 9 through 12 in six high schools and one continuation high school. The first part of the publication outlines the major concepts covered by each of these eight units: Maximizing Individual Potential; Parenting Responsibilities; Family Composition/Living Styles; Family as a Unit and How It Works; Development Stages/Parenting Skills; Family Challenges or Turning Points; Community Resources Available to Help Individuals and Families; and Parenting Your Own Parents/Aging. The major portion of part two is an annotated listing of recent selected resources that would be helpful to the teacher in a classroom reference library for parenthood education. Part two also includes guidelines for developing community support for parenthood education. (RM)
