Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Instructional Materials Lab.; Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Vocational Education.
These materials for the curriculum area of creating a living environment comprise one of six such packages that are part of the Ohio Vocational Consumer/Homemaking Curriculum Guide. The curriculum area or perennial problem taken up in this document is divided into three practical problems regarding: (1) a place to live; (2) managing a home environment; and (3) near and far living environment. These are further categorized into seven concerns: choice of residence, acquiring housing, energy, home maintenance, equipping and furnishing the home, sharing environments, and public housing. Each concern is divided into a number of concepts or modules. This package consists of 30 modules. Introductory materials include 12 case studies used in many of the modules. The format for each module is as follows: code, perennial problem, practical problem, concern/concept, homemaking skills (listing of various skills needed by the homemaker as related to the developed concepts), and a chart relating process skills (steps of practical reasoning), concepts further breakdown of the topic), and strategies (information and activities that facilitate the teaching/learning of the concepts). In some cases, specific resources are attached; otherwise, teachers may choose their own resources based upon availability and appropriateness to individual classrooms. (YLB)
