These State Curriculum Standards for Vocational Home Economics Education combine vocational home economics content with the development of decision-making skills in solving real life problems. They offer students the opportunity to study the home and family, develop entry-level job skills, and learn higher order thinking skills. The curriculum standards are categorized into consumer and homemaking education and occupational home economics. Consumer and homemaking education is further divided into comprehensive consumer and homemaking education (levels I-III); child development, care, and guidance; clothing and textiles (levels I-III and special needs); consumer education (levels I-III); exploratory homemaking; family/individual health; family living and parenthood education; food and nutrition (levels I-III); home management (levels I-II); and housing, home furnishings, and equipment. Occupational home economics is divided into child care and guidance management and services (levels I-III); clothing, apparel, and textiles management, production, and services (exploratory, levels I-III); food production, management, and services (levels I-III); and food service (levels I-II). A brief description of the instructional program is provided. Areas in which the program will provide instruction are correlated with expectations for students. (YLB)
