Intended for use by high school teachers of vocational home economics in Oklahoma to aid in local planning and developing of a nonrepetitious core curriculum to prepare students for home economics-related occupations and their roles as consumers and homemakers, this curriculum guide covers the entire course program for the high school years. Three major areas are identified and divided into specialized topics as follow: (1) consumer and homemaking programs, which include career exploration, child development, clothing and textiles, consumer education, foods and nutrition, housing and home furnishing, personal and family relationships, and family living; (2) occupational programs, which consist of information on careers in the following fields: foods and nutrition; child development; clothing and textiles; hospitality (i.e., entertainment and recreation, child care, and food services); institutional and home management; and home furnishing, equipment, and services; and (3) special occupational programs, which give an orientation to the world of work and includes introductions to and job possibilities in specific occupational fields such as child development, hospitality, food service, sewing, laundry and dry cleaning, and health. For each of the three main areas a chart is provided showing the teaching sequence of the various subjects which reflects the increasing maturity of the students as they progress to the higher levels.
