This curriculum guide consists of materials for use in planning and delivering junior high school homemaking courses focusing on individual and family health. Discussed first are program and curriculum planning. The next chapter focuses on the special needs of handicapped and disadvantaged learners and details strategies for addressing these needs. The next five chapters contain materials for use in presenting a series of homemaking courses addressing such topics as personal health and safety, prevention of illness, jobs and career opportunities related to family and individual health, decisions related to matters of family health, home care for elderly or handicapped family members, health care for terminally ill individuals, health protection, care of mothers and infants, and home health emergencies. Each of these chapters lists competencies and corresponding subcompetencies needed by homemakers in each of several areas, and under each competency group, course content is provided in the form of "learning and evaluation experiences" each designed to clarify a particular "concept" which in turn relates back to the principal competency. Also included in the guide are an extensive assortment of teaching aids, a reference list, and a list of publishers. (MN)
