Recommendations from the White House Conference on Children and Youth for Home Economics Teachers on the Family Today. Part 2.
Simpson, Elizabeth, Ed.; Manning, Doris, Ed.
Many of the recommendations of the 1960 White House Conference on Children and Youth have implications for home economics education and 14 of these recommendations form the basis for this publication, and for Part I, available as VT 005 255. Part II contains four articles on problems of families which affect their school-age members. Each chapter begins with a presentation of one of several recommendations made at the White House Conference to solve these problems. A brief discussion of related materials drawn primarily from survey and reference papers prepared for the conference participants follows. Finally, suggestions are given for implementing the recommendations in the home economics programs. Chapters cover: (1) Family Life and Leisure Activities, (2) Teaching Values Through Family Recreation, considering the need for values as well as the evaluation and planning of family recreation, (3) Family Guideposts to Social Behavior, describing establishments and activities of parent education programs, and (4) The Family and Citizenship Education discusses the role of the home, community, and home economics teacher.
