Clothing and Textiles Curriculum Guide. Basic Unit, Advanced Unit, and Semester Course. Draft.
Casey, Ruth; And Others
The clothing and textiles guide, part of a consumer and homemaking education unit, was developed in a 3-week curriculum workshop at Winthrop College in June 1972. The identified objectives and learning experiences have been developed with basic reference to developmental tasks, needs, interests, capacities, and prior learning experiences of students. Concepts considered in the basic, grade 9, unit are: selection of clothing, care of clothing, construction of a simple garment, and career opportunities in clothing and textiles. In the grade 10, advanced, unit the social and psychological aspects of clothing, management of the clothing dollar, selection and care of fabrics and notions, and advanced clothing techniques are considered. The semester course, for grades 10-12, examines the meaning of clothes, resources for personal clothing, influence of clothing and textile characteristics, clothing construction, accessories, and clothing and textile career opportunities. Under each concept, three columns list behavioral objectives, learning and evaluation experiences, and teaching resources. (AG)
