Clothing and Textiles Curriculum Guide for Exploratory Homemaking Programs (Grades 6-8). Volume I. Bulletin 1700.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge. Div. of Vocational Education.
This first volume of a curriculum guide for use in vocational home economics programs in Louisiana includes entry-level materials for students in grades six through eight. The topics from this level may be included in Exploratory Homemaking, an approved elective offering for students in the cited grades. The unit may be limited to nonlaboratory learning experiences, or it may include a simple construction project. Topics covered in the unit are the following: social psychological aspects of clothing, personal appearance, textiles, economic aspects of clothing, clothing care, careers in clothing and textiles, and clothing construction skill development. Each topic is complete with content, student learning activities, and resources. A complete topical outline for all levels is included in the initial pages of each volume of the guide, while topical outlines for each level precede the materials for that specific level. Student competency-based objectives are included for each topic and some suggested student learning activities are given with the content under each topic and subtopic. Teacher and student resources--such as bulletins, pamphlets, audiovisual materials, and state-approved textbooks--are suggested for each topic and subtopic. An appendix to the guide contains a list of supplementary materials with complete reference information and a brief description of the materials, bulletin board ideas, and teaching supplements. (KC)
