Noon, Madeline Estella; Hanson, Connie
The document describes the consumer and home economics summer programs for grade 7 and grade 8 girls in two junior high schools. The programs provided opportunities to learn basic sewing and cooking skills, as well as personal improvement such as grooming, hygiene, posture, and modeling. A number of field trips to supplement the class instruction were made. Pretests and posttests were used to evaluate the programs. The tests showed that all of the girls had improved, and the students' own evaluations were very positive. Teachers also felt that the programs were successful and recommended continuation, with more supplies and time allotted for the programs. A 20-page section of the program's instructional materials includes pre- and posttests and other student materials. (MF)
