Hawkins, Lena; And Others
Intended for use by teachers at the high school level, this curriculum guide, which is one in a series of guides for consumer and homemaking education in Kentucky, outlines a semester special interest course on the subject of housing. The two units, comprehensive I and II, which are prerequisites for this course are found in a separate guide (CE 017 504). Covering many of the same topics in depth, this curriculum focuses on the following concepts: (1) influences affecting the choice of family housing, such as economics, geographical location, governmental financing, and types of housing available; (2) floor plans; (3) interior design; (4) home furnishings; (5) furniture, furniture refinishing, bathroom design, appliances, and lighting; (6) home ownership, its selection, financing, building, and landscaping; (7) home and equipment maintenance and repairs; and (8) career opportunities in housing-related occupations. Behavioral objectives are stated in terms of student competencies, and the specific teaching strategies are accompanied by references to outside resources and supporting generalizations. A list of resources is gathered together at the end, including books, periodicals, pamphlets, community resources, and filmstrips. (ELG)
