Guidelines for Clothing Education. H. E. Bulletin No. 34.
Washington State Coordinating Council for Occupational Education, Olympia.
The curriculum guide is organized around major concepts and generalizations on textiles and clothing considered educationally significant. The first major part of the document (15 pages) provides a detailed organizational outline of the behavioral outcomes and generalizations for the unit plans. The material is organized according to levels of maturity: (1) beginning (you), (2) intermediate (your family), and (3) advanced (your future). The second major section (142 pages) provides four unit plans. The first three units, prepared for the three levels of maturity, stress two concepts: the significance of textiles and clothing to the individual in society and acquisition and use of textiles and clothing. Each unit specifies the major concept, areas of concentration, learning level, and behavioral outcomes; and is organized according to coordinated generalizations, learning experiences, and resources for learning. The fourth unit on clothing construction specifies the major concepts, areas of concentration, concepts, and generalizations. It is organized according to learning experiences or activities based on the five clothing construction concepts of compatibility, fitting, flexibility, stabilizing, and shaping. The document concludes with three appendixes: the criteria for learning experiences and teaching procedures, suggestions for individualized instruction, and lists of resource materials. (BP)
