Ferguson, Gloria E.; And Others
The four instructional units or mini-courses in the area of home economics are designed for the seventh through ninth grade levels. In the first two units (parts A and B), both six-week courses, provide seven learning activities in family living and 10 activities in personal culture focusing on: self and personality development, goals and values, relationships within and outside the family, couples and family life cycle, and economics of home and family, and career decision making. The 12-week course in child development (part C), provides six learning activities designed to train students through involvement in local pre-school and primary education program activities. Topics studied include: human reproduction, parents and family, child care and development, daily problems in child care, vocations, and available community resources. The final unit (part D) deals with careers in home economics, and the 22 activities, divided into grade levels, examine: career awareness; roles; personal interests; values clarification; and careers in clothing, textiles, design, food and nutrition, and child care and development. Each lesson is organized into goals, performance objectives, activities, and outcome measures headings, and the first three units contain resource lists. (JB)
