Exemplary Home Economics Project.
Springfield School District 186, IL.
This report includes a seven-part narrative and extensive appendixes from the first year of a project initiated by one school district to evaluate, revise, change, and update the home economics curriculum. The narrative discusses formation and activities of a program development committee; three surveys, involving currently enrolled students, students who had taken home economics within the last 10 years, and selected community businesses to provide evidence for curriculum changes; development of the new course, Orientation to Hospitality, based on results of the surveys; promotion of home economics through a brochure and posters; inservice workshops; and course evaluation, revisions, and writing of the curriculum. Recommendations for the second year of the project are made. Appendixes include survey instruments and results, proposal for the hospitality course, course descriptions, the brochure, and a form developed for use in curriculum writing. (YLB)
