[MATCHE: Management Approach to Teaching Consumer and Homemaking Education.] Occupational Strand: Textiles and Clothing. Module II-D-2: Assembly Line Garment Construction.
This competency-based preservice home economics teacher education module on assembly line garment construction is the second in a set of three modules on occupational aspects of 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 objective and overview, three units of instruction are presented: (1) assembly line procedures and construction (includes lessons on garment construction procedures and standards and techniques used to produce quality construction); (2) constructing clothing to meet commercial specifications (includes lessons on types of equipment, sequence of construction, operating a power machine, and identifying construction processes); and (3) differences in textiles and clothing construction related to cost and quality (includes lessons on quality in textiles and clothing construction). Each lesson includes a narrative summary and suggested resources. A list of suggested module resources (readings) and 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].)
