The eight units of the curriculum cover the following topics: food customs and trends, nutrient requirements and health, management of kitchens and resources, food preparation techniques, leadership and citizenship, special nutritional needs, meal management, and career opportunities. 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 4 state-adopted textbooks, 26 other books, 5 computer software programs, 14 videotapes, and 7 sources for videotapes.
