Colorado Program Planning Guide for Home Economics Education -- Secondary, Adult and Occupations. Supplement.
Colorado State Univ., Ft. Collins.
Curriculum is a program of learning provided to educate the individual to live in society. In this guide, definitions of terms are offered and the philosophical foundations examined. Attention is directed to psychological foundations (learning, developmental tasks, human needs, characteristics of exceptional students); and to subject field as foundation in terms of structure of programs, home learning experiences, home visits, and the future homemakers of America. Population, economic, educational, and scientific and technological trends comprise the section on sociological foundations. Basic elements of curriculum are examined from the viewpoint of affective, cognitive, and psychomotor domains and a model for planning curriculum and teaching for concept development is presented. Suggested structures for curriculum are supported by flow charts, and discussion of: scope and sequence, placement of depth courses, occupational training, and out of school programs. A supplement provides extensive data on population trends with respect to factors such as: gross national product, disposable personal income, personal consumption expenditures, type of family, age, sex, and occupation.
