Home Economics Reading Skills: Problems and Selected References.
Cranney, A. Garr; And Others
Home economics presents at least eight problems to secondary school reading teachers. These problems include poor readers, difficult reading material, lack of reading materials, teachers' lack of training in reading instruction, scarce information about home economics for reading teachers, diversity of the home economics field (requiring a wide variety of skills), increasing literacy requirements as technology develops, and a misinformed popular image of home economics as an easy, non-academic subject. This paper identifies selected information sources in home economics reading skills and in home economics for the high school reading teacher. They were selected through a review of 34 secondary reading texts, other selected home economics texts, and several ERIC searches, along with a 35-year review of the principal journals in reading and in home economics. Listed in the paper are the professional journals most likely to be of help to home economics or secondary reading teachers, and popular magazines in the field. Eight current texts covering each home economics subfield are listed. The longer reading skills list is composed of books, book chapters, and articles. Secondary school content-area reading textbooks are noted. (KC)
