California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
The guide presents consumer concepts and generalizations related to five instructional areas of the home economics program: clothing and textiles, foods and nutrition, housing and home furnishing, human development and family relations, and management of finances, resources, and services. Each of the five instructional areas includes: (1) performance objectives (for middle school/junior high school, high school, and community college/adult levels) corresponding to concepts for 14 areas of consumer education, (2) instructional strategies (learning sequences for the various levels which include objectives, activities, student evaluation procedures, instructional materials, and resource lists), (3) suggested learning experiences for individual or group projects listed according to educational levels, and (4) a supplementary resources list. The guide also contains materials on course design for use in developing consumer education programs and suggestions for learning experiences to promote outreach to school and community. A 14-page section lists professional resources, instructional resources, and selected sources of consumer information and assistance. Thrity-two pages of drawings to be used with overhead projectors to illustrate specific learning strategies conclude the guide. (Author/MS)
