This curriculum guide on living environments is one of a set of five Oregon goal-based home economics curriculum guides. Provided in this guide are the following: one suggested district goal (students will understand the environmental impact of housing upon society and culture when creating and managing a livable habitat); five suggested program goals (e.g., the student will be able to evaluate the impact of environments on people); sixty-seven suggested course goals (e.g., the student will be able to identify the essential ingredients in the environment that affect individual and family well-being); and over 650 suggested learning experiences (e.g., collect newspaper articles related to a current environmental issue, identify effects of possible solutions, and relate the advantages and disadvantages in class. Also included in this document are suggestions for guide use, a description of goal-based planning for home economics, and a numbered list of resources (books and articles for students and teachers, pamphlets, kits and games, magazines, tapes and slides, films and filmstrips) keyed to the learning experiences.
