Designed for junior or senior high school students with academic, socio-economic, or other handicaps, the Coordinated Vocational-Academic Education (CVAE) Clothing Services curriculum guide is also useful in other vocational education programs. Information is presented in three sections. Section one is an overview for teacher preparation; suggestions for planning, teaching, and evaluating CVAE programs; and suggestions for using the guide. Section two includes the following concepts: job opportunities in clothing services, sewing tools and equipment, sewing skills, custom clothing construction, assembly line production, alteration and repair, laundering and dry cleaning, and packing and storing clothes. Section three aids the teacher in planning laboratory experiences which simulate actual job situations. Patterns and directions are included for a number of projects adaptable to assembly line techniques. General suggestions for conducting laboratory experiences are also included. A 14-page annotated reference list concludes the document and offers student references, books, audiovisual aids, pamphlets and other instructional materials. (MW)
