Model Learner Outcomes for Home Economics Education.
Rogers, Cheryl, Ed.; And Others
Chapter 1 of this document contains sets of statements adopted by either the Minnesota State Board of Education or the Minnesota State Legislature. They represent the hierarchy used by Department of Education staff as they develop model learner outcomes for each subject area. Contents include learner values, education system values, philosophy for learning in the public schools, philosophy for the public education system, mission statements, and learner goals. Chapter 2 discusses the role and purpose of home economics education. Chapter 3 (which has been included in its revised 1989 form) provides a listing of home economics education model learner outcomes to be achieved by students by the time they graduate. Outcomes are presented for the following areas: family life; child development and parenting; consumer food and nutrition; consumer housing; consumer textiles and clothing; home and family resource management; work/career; and technology. Each area identifies knowledge and process outcomes. Each learner outcome is keyed to the learner goals in chapter 1 and is referenced to the cognitive, psychomotor, and affective development domains. Outcomes that focus on multicultural, gender fair, and international/global concept development are coded to indicate this emphasis. Chapter 4 explains how to transpose these learner outcomes into a local district curriculum. Four curriculum development forms with instructions are provided, and 10 references are attached. (YLB)
