Integrating Aging into the Home Economics Curriculum.
Fife, Sharan G.; And Others
This publication provides the high school home economics teacher with (1) self-instructional materials with accurate information and concepts about aging and (2) a curriculum to assist in teaching aging in the home economics classroom. The purpose of the self-instructional materials is to allow the teacher to demonstrate knowledge of introductory background information on aging, describe three methods of implementing aging into the curriculum in five home economics subject-matter areas, and utilize their knowledge in these areas. Materials are divided into these five subject-matter sections: human development, housing, nutrition, clothing, and consumer problems. Each section contains a discussion on integrating this area into the classroom, subject-matter content, and a learning activity. An appendix contains learning activity answer keys. The curriculum is also divided into the five subject-matter areas. Each unit (on one subject area) contains a conceptual structure, generalization, objectives, competencies, list of resources, and learning experiences (activity sheets) with teacher suggestions.
