This curriculum guide is one of a number of curriculum guides developed for use in vocational home economics education in Texas. The guide is correlated closely with the essential elements prescribed by the State Board of Education. The competencies in the guide are the essential elements, and the subcompetencies are the subelements prescribed in the Texas Administrative Codes for vocational home economics. A conceptual outline of each unit is shown in the left-hand column, with corresponding learning and evaluation experiences in the right-hand column. These relate to the subelements of each unit. Teaching aids keyed to the learning and evaluation experiences--including transparency masters, activities, and exercises--are located at the end of the book. Key points and critical questions are designated. The eight units of this guide cover the following topics: family living; child development; clothing and textiles; housing for the family; management for daily living; individual consumer responsibilities; food and nutrition for families and individuals; and personal and family health. Information on teaching about careers in vocational home economics fields is included. (KC)
