Implementation of Competency Based Education in Marriage and the Family. Final/Annual Report.
Akers, Martha G.
A project was conducted to implement a competency-based semester course in marriage and the family that was geared toward high school students. Four experienced consumer and homemaking teachers developed a series of 33 competencies that were verified by 11 teachers and state staff members from across Virginia. Next, a curriculum guide was developed and evaluated by 12 teachers. The guide was then revised to incorporate the suggestions made by those evaluating it. All of those teachers who either used or reviewed the guide were quite pleased with it; however, because some teachers felt that the guide included more material than could be covered in 18 weeks, it was recommended that teachers use only those parts of the guide that they deem necessary for their own students. (Appended to the guide are a competency verification chart, a chart summarizing teacher evaluations of the guide, a master list of the competencies addressed in the four units included in the guide, a bibliography, and a project balance sheet.)
