Competencies for Home Economics Teacher Certification in West Virginia: A Progress Report.
Marshall Univ., Huntington, WV. Dept. of Home Economics.
Three proposals for certification of home economics teachers in West Virginia are presented: Home Economics Comprehensive, Grades 7-12; Home Economics Specialization, Grades 4-8; and Home Economics Specialization, Grades 7-9. Competencies developed for each certification pattern are: (1) Child Development-Family Relations; (2) Family Economics-Home Management; (3) Housing, Home Furnishing, and Equipment; (4) Foods and Nutrition; (5) Clothing and Textiles; and (6) Home Economics Education. Emphasis is placed on attainment of competencies, rather than the number of credits earned. This will provide institutions greater flexibility in devising programs which incorporate credit through examination, modules rather than courses, individualized instruction, and other approaches. The relationships among the three levels are analyzed, indicating differing degrees of emphasis with few unique elements in any category. The 29 committee members are listed. (MS)
