The planning guide contains basic materials that are being used in vocational home economics education.

Graphic presentations include: scope chart of Florida vocational home economics, a career education model, curriculum development chart, and conceptual flow charts for early childhood through late adolescence in the educational areas of human development, management and family economics, food and nutrition, housing and home furnishings, and textiles and clothing. Comprehensive continuums of performance objectives are presented for the same educational areas. Course content by levels and course descriptions for K-12 and adult courses conclude Part 1. Part 2, a Teacher Handbook, describes the Vocational Education Amendments of 1968, educational assessment and accountability, instruction in vocational home economics, accreditation standards, and Florida Teacher Education Advisory Council guidelines. Also presented are State adopted text materials, components of individualized instruction, consumer education concepts, sources of research, promotion of home economics, other aspects of the program, guidelines for middle school programs, professional organizations, management of the home economics department, and names of the State home economics education staff.
