A project was conducted to identify software suitable for use in home economics classes and to train home economics teachers to use that software with an Apple II Plus microcomputer. During the project, home economics software was identified, evaluated, and catalogued. Teaching strategies were adapted to include using the computer in the classroom. Three teachers tested techniques in their area. These results were shared during inservice workshops through a demonstration of the various types of software. Project participants rated the presentation and products disseminated as excellent. (This document packet includes a summary of the project, an outline of the workshop, a teacher guide for using the Apple Computer, a list of types of computer programs, and a catalog of home economics software. The catalog lists the title of the program, publisher, cost, hardware needed, an evaluation of program quality, and a description of the contents of the program). (KC)
