Field Test of Curriculum for School-Age Pregnant Students and School-Age Parents. Final Report.
Winand, Lois L.; Morris, Vivian Gunn
The purpose of this project was to strengthen consumer and homemaking education programs in New Jersey by increasing the competence of home economics educators to meet the needs of school-age pregnant and parenting students through their programs. The objectives of the project were: (1) to field test a curriculum designed for school-age pregnant and parenting students; (2) to develop a final draft of the curriculum using input from 14 home economics educators who participated in the field test (their written and oral input were compiled into an evaluation report that was used to revise the guide); and (3) to disseminate the revised curriculum to home economics educators in the State of New Jersey. The document is organized into six sections: (1) assessed need; (2) management plan (goal, objectives, activities); (3) implementation (duration of project, consultants, curriculum guide); (4) personnel; (5) sex equity; and (6) evaluation. Appendices, which comprise 90 percent of the document, provide a list of project staff, consultants, meeting agendas, field-test teachers, registration forms, recruitment procedures, publicity, evaluation reports and evaluation instruments.
