Textiles & Clothing Curriculum Guide. Energy and the Family.
Davidson, Jane S.; Morris, Carol
This curriculum guide on textiles and clothing, covering one of the five content areas of the Energy and Family Curriculum Guide, has been designed to provide learning experiences and identify resources that can be used to develop units of study related to energy usage and conservation. The guide is intended for use in comprehensive courses of home economics as well as specialized courses of the home economics subject matter content areas, especially in the state of Texas. The guide contains four units covering the effect of design elements on thermal comfort, energy management in clothing construction, personal care and energy use, and the role of clothing in energy management/thermal comfort (including fabric selection, relationship of fabric care to energy use, clothing selection for thermal comfort, special clothing requirements for children and the elderly, recycling clothing, and classic fashions versus fads). For each major concept, the guide provides a competency statement, terminal performance objectives, as well as concepts and generalizations linked to specific learning experiences and resources. The guide contains three appendixes. Appendix A contains a bibliography of books, pamphlets, multimedia materials, and other teaching aids. Appendix B contains prepared information sheets, games, bulletin board ideas, check lists, evaluation forms, and transparency masters. Appendix C is a collection of background information that may be helpful to the teacher in using the learning experiences. A glossary completes the curriculum guide. (KC)
