Life Skills: A Concerns Approach. North Dakota Junior High Home Economics Curriculum.
Crawford, Glinda B.; And Others
This life skills curriculum for seventh and eighth grade is organized according to major concept areas. These concept areas are defined by concerns/specific needs of the students. Part I suggests a scope and sequence for five program options dependent on time spent in instruction. Part II discusses use of the concerns approach. Sample student and parent checklists to identify student needs/concerns are provided. Part III contains instructional strategies and materials. The nine major concepts of the curriculum begin with a "welcome" to home economics life skills and Future Homemakers of America/Home Economics Related Occupations (FHA/HERO), and continue as follows: making the most of one's resources, food and the individual, human development and relationships, caring for children, clothes and the individual, personal health, personal living space, and closing (review of material). Each concept is composed of one to six subconcepts. Within each major concept of the curriculum, the subconcept sections are organized as follows: teacher planning materials (objectives, concerns addressed, applications in mathematics and/or science, learning activities, additional resources) and student handouts and teacher reference materials. Part IV lists general references. Appendixes include concerns research data. (YLB)
