This curriculum guide for food science and nutrition is one of a number of guides developed for use in vocational home economics education in Texas. Introductory materials address use of the guide and list the essential elements upon which the content is based. The guide is divided into five units: nutrition, cultural influence on food and nutrition, management, relating food and nutrition to special needs, and career options and adjustments. Each unit lists competencies and subcompetencies at the beginning of the section. Concepts related to the competencies are listed in the right-hand columns. Learning and evaluation experiences are found in the left-hand columns. Teaching aids keyed to learning and evaluation experiences--including transparency masters, activities, and exercises--are located at the end of the guide. Designations have been used in the content for (1) developing skills within the Texas Common Elements for all vocational education; (2) applying basic/academic skills; and (3) developing critical thinking skills. Key points for content discussion and review and methods for developing critical thinking skills are also indicated. (YLB)
