Illinois Plan for Home Economics Education. FY89 Final Report.
Illinois State Univ., Normal.
A project in Illinois created a 17-member committee, reviewed literature, and conducted a telephone survey of all 51 state home economics supervisors in the United States to create a conceptual framework for secondary home economics. The framework was reviewed and refined by the participants and is being published. Additional materials developed and mailed to all home economics teachers in Illinois were a 32-page resource list and a bookmark. An article based on the telephone survey was submitted to the "Vocational Education Journal," and exploration/orientation outlines and student learning activities have been started. (The 19 appendixes that make up most of this document contain the following project materials: lists of the conceptual framework committee, the teacher team, the Illinois State University subject matter specialists, material resources, and technical committee; the self-esteem teaching unit field tested by teachers and their evaluations; a resource list; newsletter articles; a marketing plan for phase II of the project; an article submitted to a journal; a sample bookmark; lists of professional meetings attended; sample materials distributed at professional meetings; requests for an American Vocational Association article; presentation formats; a news release; and questionnaires distributed at professional meetings and mailed to teacher team members with summaries of responses.)
