California State Univ., Fresno. Dept. of Home Economics.; California Polytechnic State Univ., San Luis Obispo. Dept. of Home Economics.
This competency-based preservice home economics teacher education module on consumer approach to textiles and clothing is the first in a set of four modules on consumer education related to textiles and clothing. (This set is part of a larger series of sixty-seven modules on the Management Approach to Teaching Consumer and Homemaking Education [MATCHE]--see CE 019 901-967.) Following the module objectives and overview, three units of instruction are presented: (1) factors which influence textiles and/or clothing production and consumption (includes lessons on sociological and psychological influences, political influences, geographic influences, economic influences, fashion influence, and individual factors); (2) regulations for the production, distribution, and safety of textiles (includes lessons on Textile Fiber Products Identification Act and Wool and Fair Products Labeling Acts; care labeling; and Flammable Fabrics Acts); and (3) consumer rights and responsibilities regarding textiles and clothing (includes lessons on quality and defects and consumer complaints). Each lesson includes the following elements: narrative summary, suggested activities, suggested resources (readings), and a progress check. A module pre/posttest (with answer key) concludes the document. (Workshop proceedings relating to the development of these modules are available in the ERIC system as CE 019 896-899; also available is a module on utilizing FHA-HERO as an instructional strategy to expand and strengthen the home economics instructional programs [CE 019 900].)
