The purpose of the subject area guide is to present clothing and textiles in the perspective of family living and to relate clothing and textiles to a variety of life styles. Initial emphasis is placed on curriculum planning and the taxonomy of educational objectives. Skills in clothing construction are developed throughout the four homemaking sections with units on advanced clothing construction, textiles, and tailoring principles included in the final phases of the course. Homemaking 1 introduces the significance of clothing in the life of each individual, the role of design in clothing, and management and consumer aspects of clothing. Homemaking 2 covers individual and family clothing decisions related to wardrobe planning, clothing care, grooming, and clothing selection. Homemaking 3 outlines factors influencing family clothing decisions, management and consumer aspects of family clothing, and the role of clothing and textiles in the economy. Homemaking 4 emphasizes cultural aspects of clothing, as well as the interrelationship of various aspects, and the economics of textile production. In each of the four sections, a unit on career opportunities is included. A 20-page annotated reference list and resource guide concludes the document. (MW)
