Simpson, Elizabeth Jane
To relate the three major aspects of the home economics program at the secondary level, a curriculum model consisting of education for homemaking and family life, education for employment utilizing home economics knowledge and skills, and pre-professional education was developed by the director of the Department of Vocational and Technical Education and Bureau of Educational Research, University of Illinois. A scope and sequence chart and course outline for Grades 7-12 are given for all three aspects of the curriculum model. Detailed plans for a sequence of prevocational units, which were field tested at the 7th, 8th, and 10th-grade levels and revised, contain objectives, generalizations, content, learning experiences, teaching aids, means of evaluation, and references. Also included are curriculum guides for 11th and 12th grade occupationally oriented classes. Objectives, generalizations, content, learning experiences, teaching aids, means of evaluation, and references are provided for courses in child care as well as food and clothing services. (SB)
