K-12 Course Goals in Home Economics.
Tri-County Goal Development Project, Portland, OR.
A large number of home economics program and course goals developed by outstanding teachers using available models and guides is presented in the document. The collection contains concise statements of what students can know and can do in the major content areas of home economics learning, and in the areas in which home economics relates to values education, basic education, and career education. A home economics taxonomy found in the front pages of the book serves as a specific and detailed table of contents for the collection and forms a comprehensive overview of the topics in the subject area. Three additional indexes are offered for retrieving course goals: knowledge and process classifications; home economics program goals; and career education program goals. The goals, although printed in subject collections, may be related and grouped in and across subjects. Computerization of the goals is in process to permit retrieval by any of the codes, facilitating efficient interdisciplinary planning. A measurement product also under development is a set of test items related to each course goal. (Eleven additional collections of course goals and two introductory volumes are also available from the source cited.) (AJ)
