Taylor, Martha; Toadvine, Rebecca
Helping students take a look at what the traditional family provides--necessities, protection, affection, security, transmission of values and culture, and a setting for socialization--is relevant in today's curriculum. Developed to be used at the senior high school level, the curriculum guide offers a course outline emphasizing 11 major concepts: (1) the individual in the family, (2) the role of the family, (3) the family as managers, (4) the family as consumers, (5) preparation for marriage, (6) children in the family, (7) food for the family, (8) clothing for the family, (9) housing for the family, (10) family transportation, and (11) job and career opportunities related to family living. Supporting concepts and performance objectives are stated. The material is organized according to content and generalizations, teaching strategies, learning, evaluating experiences, and corresponding resources. Classroom materials in the appendix include personal evaluation forms and checklists, a forced choice values test, charts, fact sheets, sample forms and questionnaires, a play script, puzzles, games, and transparency masters. Concluding the guide is a list of related books, booklets and pamphlets, films, filmstrips, charts, kits, periodicals, programmed learning materials, tapes, and transparencies.
