New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Secondary Curriculum Development.
The new guidelines constitute a supplement to the New York State Syllabus for a Comprehensive Program: Home Economics Education. This new approach provides guidelines for reorganizing the program for Grades 5 and 6 into four basic subject areas and six content emphases. The four subject areas are: human development; housing, furnishing and equipment; food and nutrition; and clothing and textiles. The content emphases related to each subject area are: management, buymanship, leisure, careers, health and safety, and relationships. Instructional levels have been used to identify skill development in particular subject areas for a specific emphasis according to the learner's maturity level. Further explained are the course development and module development for local use. The remainder of the document discusses the scope of learnings, framework, and modules in human development, housing, furnishings and equipment, food and nutrition, and clothing and textiles. Each module is presented in terms of behavioral outcomes, suggested learning experiences, measurement of student progress, and related modules. Included are seven appendixes (analyzing student needs, needs analysis chart, glossary of terms, miniguide for writing measurable objectives, a list of words for writing behavioral objectives, a module effectiveness form, and sample forms).
