Documentation of Core Competencies and Key Skills in the Missouri Home Economics Curriculum.
Van Buren, Jan B.
This manual was developed to provide Missouri consumer and homemaking education teachers with documentation of the core competencies and skills that they teach. The key skills were developed from the following areas: English/reading/language arts; mathematics; science; and social studies/civics. Documentation was accomplished through analysis of core competency and key skills lists, consumer and home economics competency lists, and consumer and home economics curriculum guides. The manual contains cross-reference tables of instructional materials for courses in exploratory homemaking, Home Economics I, and specialized courses. Subjects in each of the three areas are: child development, care and guidance; clothing and textiles; consumer education; family and individual health; family living and parenthood; food and nutrition; and housing and home management. Units/courses are presented alphabetically according to subject matter. Included for each subject area are the appropriate competency list and the cross-reference tables of instructional materials. Step-by-step instructions for using the cross-reference list/competency list are provided. (KC)
