Guidelines for Home Economics Education in Secondary Schools
New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton. Div. of Vocational Education.
Materials were developed by home economics personnel of the Douglass College and the New Jersey Department of Education to aid local supervisors, teachers and administrators in planning high school level home economics curriculums that will serve students with varying needs, abilities and interests. The curriculum materials reflect the broadened scope of contemporary home economics programs which include family life and consumer education. Part I--Curriculum Planning, contains the goals of home economics education, components of a comprehensive program, a schematic outline depicting paths to the future through home economics education, suggestions for evaluation and unit content of grades 7-12 and adult education, as well as home economics related occupational clusters. Part II--Guides for Developing Teaching Plans, lists the purpose and use of guides and desired behavioral outcomes. Guides are suggested for developing and evaluating learning experiences in foods and nutrition, housing, home furnishings and equipment, textiles and clothing, home managemen t and family economics, and the family and child development for middle and late adolescent level. There is no bibliography but the reader is referred to "References and Aids in the Teaching of Home Economics and Related Occupations," available as VT 007 606. (FP)
