Home Economics Curriculum Competency Based Modules in Reading, Writing and Mathematics. Tools for Integrating Basic Skills into Selected Aspects of the Consumer and Homemaking Program.
Crabtree, Myrna P.; Maltby, Carolyn T.
This document, consisting of six modules, was designed to help home economics teachers integrate the teaching of reading, writing, and mathematics skills into homemaking and consumer economics courses. The modules were developed to help students meet the minimum standards for these skills in Florida secondary schools. Preceding the modules in the document is a matrix for each course. The matrix provides an overview on concepts, subconcepts, standards, and skills for reading, writing, and mathematics including the pages on which the teacher can find them. Each module contains several concepts, standards, and skills to be mastered in various lessons; competencies to be achieved in each lesson; learning activities for individuals; class participation guidelines for meeting the indicated competencies; and pretests and posttests. Subject matter covered in the six modules includes child development, family living, textiles and clothing, foods and nutrition, housing and home furnishings, and family economics. A glossary and selected references are included with an appendix containing minimum student performance standards for Florida schools. (KC)
