Urban Curriculum Relevance through Teacher Development. Final Report.
Winand, Lois L.; Morris, Vivian Gunn
This paper describes a project conducted to strengthen consumer and homemaking education programs in economically depressed, urban areas of New Jersey by increasing the competence of home economics educators. The project focused on meeting the needs of school-age pregnant and parenting students. Objectives included identification of relevant home economics content and skills; development of a field-test edition of a curriculum guide; and presentation of workshops to build the competence of home economics educators. Objectives were achieved based on the products developed and self-evaluations completed by workshop participants. Home economics content and skills were identified and incorporated into modules in the curriculum guide along with appropriate reading, writing, and mathematics skills; 10 modules were developed for the field test edition of the curriculum guide. Appendixes that comprise half the report provide the following: names and addresses of project staff, consultants, advisory committee members, and workshop leaders; a survey of workshop participants; publicity, recruitment, and registration forms; a questionnaire for high school students and three sets of evaluation forms; and a field test response form.
