Adult Roles & Functions. A Nonlaboratory Home Economics Course for Eleventh and Twelfth Graders.
West Virginia State Vocational Curriculum Lab., Cedar Lakes.
This competency-based curriculum guide is designed for a non-laboratory course in home economics for eleventh and twelfth grades. It was developed and field tested by twenty-nine teachers in high schools in West Virginia. The Adult Roles and Functions curriculum is organized in two sections. The teacher's section contains information on teaching the course, a master list of concepts, essential competencies and learner outcomes, scheduling suggestions, a glossary, resource list, and addresses of publishers. The units section consists of the nine units for the course, each with a guide containing a list of competencies, suggested activities, instructional materials needed and evaluation suggestions; and supplements, which are student materials such as case histories, role playing suggestions, quizzes, attitude surveys, games, and discussion questions. Topics covered by the units include problems of teenagers, family relations, home management, housing, parenting, nutrition, consumer education, and careers. An introductory unit provides an overview of the course and presents unifying concepts that recur throughout the course, such as valuing, self-concept, communication, lifestyle, goals, and decision making.
