Horn, Fern M., Ed.
The curriculum guide is the result of a project to develop, field test, analyze, and revise the junior high level home economics course offerings for Appleton public schools. The theme for grades seven and eight is exploring your world and includes five topics: (1) family, stressing personality development and communicating with and understanding others; (2) foods, presenting nutrition instruction in the four basic food groups, meal planning, use of recipes, manners, and table setting; (3) world of children, discussing the responsibilities of the care of children; (4) clothing, emphasizing personal grooming and clothing care with special attention given to basic sewing skills; and (5) housing, encouraging the student's sense of responsibility for their own rooms. These five topics are repeated for grade nine under the heading of "Focus on Teen-Life." Each topic follows the format of course introduction, conceptual structure, including performance objectives; unit, consisting of content, learning experiences, and evaluative exercises; appendix; and bibliography. Testing instruments are contained in each appendix and are presented as quizzes, games, and crossword puzzles. (LJ)
