Mindel, Mildred W.; 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 on the subject of housing. The seventh grade unit discusses the benefits of creative arts and has the student construct a creative art project for his home; the eighth grade unit emphasizes the home environment and its influence on teenagers and includes a creative project for the home; the comprehensive I level unit describes individual involvement and needs in housing, such as the influence of housing on the individual, personal space needs, interior design, and arrangement of furnishings; and the comprehensive II level unit covers family involvement in housing, including the influence of housing on the family, household, the importance of a livable home atmosphere, the planning of kitchens and table items, interior design, the arrangement of furnishings, the selection of a home, and job opportunities in the area of housing. 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 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 four to five weeks each. A separate publication (CE 017 506) 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)
