Home Economics Senior I Curriculum Guide.
Manitoba Dept. of Education and Training, Winnipeg.
This curriculum guide describes the content of the curriculum of the senior home economics program for high schools in Manitoba. The curriculum, revised to foster both intellectual and personal growth and enhance a positive life-style, encompasses primary skills of inferring, synthesizing, analyzing, and evaluating, as well as a complete range of communication skills. Teaching methods emphasize discovery, inquiry, and experiential approaches. The curriculum incorporates a variety of student activities: brainstorming, case studies, demonstrations, discussions, interviews, presentations, tutoring, role playing, and simulation. Included in the curriculum are scope and sequence for the following courses: food and nutrition (the individual and food needs, the consumer and food, and the preparation and service of food); clothing, housing, and design (the individual and clothing, the consumer and textiles, and construction of textile projects); and family studies (the family). For each major topic in each of these courses, the guide provides objectives correlated to concepts, generalizations, and content, and suggested activities. (KC)
