Consumer-Home Economics Curriculum. Middle Schools. Connecticut.
Connecticut State Dept. of Education, Hartford. Div. of Vocational Education.
The teacher developed curriculum guide is intended for home economics programs for boys and girls grades six through nine. Areas are presented sequentially, not by grade level, so that objectives increase in depth within an area. This allows for flexibility within and between schools. Consumer education suggestions appear both in content areas and in the consumer education section. Curriculum plans are presented in seven areas: child care and development; clothing and textiles; consumer education and management; family health and safety; foods and nutrition; housing and interiors; and personal, family, and community relationships. A five-column format lists behavioral objectives, content, learning experiences, evaluation, and a space for teacher's notes. A bibliography of suggested references and resources concludes each area. A three-page article contains remarks on the characteristics and needs of middle school youth. A second article of similar length discusses programing considerations. (AG)
