The purpose of this curriculum reference is to assist teachers in developing skills to manage change in personal, professional, and social settings. It is divided into two parts. Part I challenges home economics teachers to clarify their attitudes toward change, to assess their change agent knowledge and skills, and to develop action plans for initiating change. Topics covered include personal, professional, and societal changes; responses to change; theoretical approaches to change; the change agent; a model for change; and change implementation. Part II is designed to assist home economics teachers as they help students to recognize, accept or reject, manage, and initiate change in their own lives. It is divided into three sections. First, learning activities are presented which will involve students as they explore the concept of change, describe changes in their lives, identify attitudes toward change, and recognize how these attitudes affect change management. The second section includes learning activities designed to assist students in determining how they have managed or are managing change in their own lives. Finally, learning activities are presented to assist students in developing change agent skills. All activity areas in all three parts follow a similar format: objectives, principles, and learning activities. Evaluative questions and forms are included within the learning activities. (YLB)
