This curriculum guide was developed as a resource for teachers to use in planning and implementing a competency-based instructional program on interior design and housing at the high school level. It contains materials for a 2-semester course, based on the North Carolina Vocational Education Program of Studies (revised 1992); it is designed to help students learn about making environmentally sound choices in housing, to be aware of issues related to housing, and to build and strengthen their foundations in basic skills through working on practical problems of creating and maintaining a home environment for themselves and their families. The seven units cover the following topics: factors influencing housing decisions, planning the interior of the home, careers in interior design and the housing profession, leadership and citizenship, evaluating interior and exterior living spaces, financial and legal aspects of housing, and creating and maintaining a home environment. Units include competencies, objectives, a teaching outline keyed to teaching strategies and learning activities, and suggested resources. Other contents of the guide are as follows: course blueprint; course matrices; content outline; curriculum page layout; and a resource list citing 2 state-adopted textbooks, 19 other books, 5 computer software programs, 21 videotapes, and 7 information and instructional kits.
