This document is a curriculum guide for a one-semester course "Home and Family" for students in grades 11 and 12. The course is planned to cover the nature, function, and significance of human relationships within the family unit; interpersonal skills; preparation for marriage; development of positive self-concept and responsibility in family members; selection of clothing and housing to meet social and psychological needs of family members; and the importance of nutrition, emotional health, and physical health to the well-being of the family. A pretest is provided at the beginning of the guide which teachers can use to survey what information about home and family the students have mastered or to learn where there are misconceptions. The same test or a similar version may be given at the end of the course to see how much information students have learned and retained. This curriculum guide is divided into five units. Within each unit are a list of related terms, ideas for student projects, appendices, suggestions for Future Homemakers of America projects, and a unit test. The five units are My World, Family World, Outside World, Future World, and Crises in the Family's World. This guide includes a variety of teaching strategies and teaching materials but does not go into the extensive detail which can be found in textbooks. (ABL)
