Textiles & Clothing. Home Economics for Oregon Schools.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
This curriculum guide on textiles and clothing 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 be able to make textile and clothing decisions which meet individual and family needs); four suggested program goals (e.g., the student will know how to acquire and care for apparel and textile products in a manner which meets personal needs); fifty-two course goals (e.g., the student will be able to identify the advantages and disadvantages of various ways of acquiring clothing); and over 300 suggested learning experiences (e.g., choose an item of clothing you really want, then assume that you have $10 to spend for it, $20 to spend, $50 to spend for it; decide how you would acquire the item in each case, and share decisions as a class and explain reasons for making them). 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.
