Henry, Nina
This competency-based preservice home economics teacher education module on sociological, psychological, and economic factors affecting clothing selection is the second 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, two units of instruction are presented: (1) the influence of society on individual dress (includes five lessons on social conditions, psychological conditions, economic conditions, standards of appearance, and clothing values) and (2) individual differences and values, self-image and life style in clothing selection (includes two lessons on self-image and life style). Each lesson generally includes the following elements: narrative summary, suggested activities, suggested resources (readings), and progress check (with answer key). 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].)
