Designed to assist teachers and administrators in developing curricula for secondary vocational home economics programs, this publication provides materials for the two programs that comprise vocational home economics education--consumer and homemaking education (CHE) and home economics related occupations (HERO) programs. The CHE program is presented in course outlines for seven content areas: child development, care, and guidance; clothing and textiles; consumer education; family living and parenthood; food and nutrition; home management; and housing, home management, home furnishings, and equipment. An objective for each course is also indicated. The HERO program is presented in narrative form. A checklist of procedures to be followed in developing a HERO program curriculum is followed by a complete listing of the HERO program code areas: child care and guidance management and services; clothing, apparel, and textiles management, production, and services; food production, management, and services; home furnishings and equipment management, production, and services; and institutional, home management, and supporting services.
