Kentucky Consumer & Homemaking Education. Clothing and Textiles. Curriculum Guide, Comprehensive Courses.
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 clothing and textile areas. Starting at the seventh grade level in Unit 1, the topics and instruction increase in complexity from one unit to the next. Many of the same topics are treated at the different levels and include the following: (1) sewing tools and equipment; (2) color and its effect; (3) the influence of clothing; (4) fiber types; (5) wardrobe selection and planning; (6) accessories; (7) garment construction; (8) minor repairs and alterations; (9) care and storage of clothing; and (10) job opportunities in the clothing field. 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 a four-week period for completion while the comprehensive level units need six to seven weeks each. A separate publication (CE 017 460) outlines a semester course on the same subject, and the appendix to the entire series (CE 017 496) includes activities for each instructional unit. (ELG)
