Fiber, Fabric, and Fashion. Clothing and Textiles Curriculum. Environment I.
Arizona State Univ., Tempe.
A competency-based instructional guide for grades 7-14, this volume is one of three parts, each of which focuses on a different instructional environment (psychomotor, cognitive, or affective) for clothing or fashion instruction, and each of which includes competencies and corresponding learning activities for each of three instructional levels. The topic for this volume (Environment I--psychomotor) is fashion selection and construction, with emphasis placed on individualized instruction. (The Environment II volume [CE 015 956] on clothing communication and the clothing consumer in the marketplace emphasizes group processes while Environment III [CE 015 957] on exploring fashion careers emphasizes interdisciplinary instruction.) Besides the six chapters that constitute Environment I, this volume includes the introductory sections to the entire set, outlining the methodology used to develop the course, its structure, possibilities for application, and scope, and listing companies offering materials to home economic teachers. Constructed so that the student may proceed at his own pace, the six topics of this volume are crafts; selection of clothing, patterns, and fabrics; fiber and fabrics; sewing equipment; construction competencies; and care of clothing. Each chapter consists of the following parts: a topical outline, a bibliography, the competencies and corresponding activities for each instructional level, and validated challenge tests. (ELG)
