Texas Tech Univ., Lubbock. Home Economics Curriculum Center.
This document was developed for the purposes of (1) outlining the competencies and subcompetencies to be developed in vocational home economics classes in Texas; (2) providing guidance to teachers for local program planning; and (3) serving as a means of communicating the scope and content of vocational home economics education in Texas to others. Preliminary to the competencies, the guide provides an overview of vocational home economics including both consumer and homemaking education and occupational home economics education, descriptions of instructional methods used in home economics, and recommendations for class period allocations and grouping of subjects for each course in the homemaking sequences. Part 1 of the guide presents competencies for consumer and homemaking education. These competencies cover the following topics: child development, care, and guidance; clothing and textiles; family and individual health; family living and parenthood; food and nutrition; home management and consumer education; and housing, home furnishings, and equipment. Part 2 lists competencies for occupational home economics in these areas: child care and guidance; management services; food production, management, and services; home and community services; home furnishings and equipment management, production, and services; institutional home management and supportive services; and general employability competencies.
