North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. of Vocational and Technical Education Services.
This supplement to the Teen Living curriculum contains materials to help teachers integrate family skills and tech prep skills into consumer home economics programs. It is keyed to a 2-semester consumer home economics course, based on the North Carolina Program of Studies (revised 1992); it is designed to help students focus on the relationship between family and work, incorporate activities fostering basic skills, and explore the roles of consumer choices, teen pregnancy, and student organizations. The guide contains the following units: (1) work skills; (2) family skills; (3) a tech prep unit; and (4) eight teen living units. The teen living units cover these topics: work and family, nutrition and wellness, family living, child development, consumer management, clothing and fashion, living environments, and leadership and citizenship. Units contain assignments that include competencies, objectives, resources, activities, suggestions for further study and practice, and a personal assessment. The supplement also contains a bibliography listing 18 sources; three appendixes include a project leadership form, a comparison of a conventional classroom to a classroom based on recommendations of the Secretary's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS), and information on parliamentary procedure.
