Simpson, Elizabeth J.; Barron, Joseph M.
Illinois Teacher of Home Economics, v8 n2 p74-86 1964-65
After outlining the three major purposes of home economics programs at the secondary level the article discusses how to best achieve these purposes with respect to facilities planning. Classroom and laboratory arrangements and their relation to homemaking skills, occupational home economics, and preprofessional preparation are discussed and illustrated by means of drawings and photographs. A plan for an existing high school home economics department which incorporates key concepts serves as a model for the discussion. (FPO)
