Joint Explorations Program. A Supplement to Home Economics/Industrial Arts 7.
Manitoba Dept. of Education, Winnipeg.
This Joint Explorations Program for Home Economics/Industrial Arts, middle years, is a guide and support document related to the curriculum guides for Home Economics 7-9, and Industrial Arts 7-9. Developed as part of the overall revision of the Home Economics and Industrial Arts programs for the junior high schools of Manitoba, the guide provides materials to help the teacher design an 80-hour explorations program that includes two areas of study in home economics and two in industrial arts. The exploratory program is intended to provide students with a wide range of experiences that enhance the awareness and development of students' technical ability, judgment, self-reliance, resourcefulness, and knowledge of self, all of which lead to becoming more effective producers and consumers. An "Overview" section presents the rationale for a joint explorations program, discusses how the content of the program is related to the adolescent developmental stages, describes the program structure, and lists exploratory objectives and program goals and objectives. The "Implementation" section covers program design, scope and sequence, time allotment, selection of materials, evaluation, and students with special needs. The areas of study in home economics and in industrial arts are listed, and suggestions are offered for choosing areas of study and exploratory objectives. (YLB)
