Guide for Consumer and Homemaking Education Programs in Virginia Secondary Schools.
Virginia State Dept. of Education, Richmond. Home Economics Education Service.
The guide contains sequential units of consumer and homemaking education instruction for grades 6-12. The units for each grade level build upon and expand concepts developed during the preceding level. Introductory material describes program goals, home economics offerings in Virginia secondary schools, and the development and use of the guide. A chart shows the organization (by units) of the program for grades 6-12. Each of the following family living areas of the guide contains an overview and six instructional units: Consumption of Goods and Services in the Family, Cultural Development in the Family, Individual Development in the Family, and Management in the Family. For each unit a grade level, teaching time (ranging from 3 to 12 weeks), means of evaluation, an objective, several specific concepts and their relation to home economics subject areas are given. Each specific concept is then presented with specific objectives, generalizations, statements of content, and a wide variety of suggested experiences for learning and evaluation. (Author/MS)
