Evolution of a Human Ecology Curriculum from Home Economics: A Proposal for High Schools.
Lunneborg, Patricia W.
Proposed is the development of an ecology curriculum at the secondary school level by home economics instructors in conjunction with teachers in biology, health, social science, etc. To combat the decline in enrollment in home economics and the complaint of irrelevance of traditional cooking and sewing courses, home economics teachers are urged to redefine their field as human ecology, an academic discipline with legitimate vocational programs attached such as food preparation, day care, community service.
