Kentucky Consumer & Homemaking Education. Personal and Family Development. Curriculum Guide, Comprehensive Courses.
Wilson, Judith; And Others
Intended for use by teachers on the junior high and high school levels, this curriculum guide, which is one in a series of guides for consumer and homemaking education in Kentucky, outlines four courses in the area of personal and family development. The seventh grade level unit discusses the influence of health habits on personal appearance and the effect of personal development upon the individual; the eighth grade level unit focuses on social behavior, getting along with others now, and getting along with others in the world of work; the comprehensive I level unit covers personality development and socialization in relation to peer relationships and work attitudes; and the comprehensive II level unit studies maturity and its role in adult life, family life, marriage attitudes, and work attitudes. For each unit, major concepts are identified as well as behavioral objectives which are stated in terms of student competencies, and the specific teaching strategies are accompanied by references to outside resources (primarily textbooks) and supporting generalizations. Units 1 and 2, which are to be used in the seventh and eighth grades, each require two to three weeks for completion, while the comprehensive level units need six to seven weeks each. A separate publication (CE 017 497) outlines a semester special interest course on the same subject, and the appendix to the entire series (CE 017 496) includes activities for each instructional unit.
