Home Economics Curriculum Integration Project.
Pasco County District School Board, Land O'Lakes, FL.
This manual, which is intended for use in high school classrooms throughout Florida, contains home economics learning activities featuring three different levels of integration of vocational and academic education. At level 1, activities teaching child development and homemaking skills are provided. These activities are structured to be taught within the confines of single classrooms by teachers integrating strategies reinforcing personal and occupational relevance and the basics of reading, writing, arithmetic, speaking, and listening into the curriculum. The level 2 child development and homemaking skills activities provided are to be taught by pairs of vocational and academic teachers who jointly plan and deliver instruction in a manner emphasizing the connectedness of academic and vocational education. The level 3 activities, which also deal with child development and homemaking skills, build on projects and themes to integrate and apply learning from multiple disciplines or subject areas. Each activity is presented on an activity sheet containing some or all of the following: theme/concept/topic; intended course; intended grade(s); objective(s); career/life connection; suggested instructional activities; method(s) of evaluation; required materials/resources; and name of the activity's developer(s). Also included are selected materials from a home economics curriculum integration workshop. (MN)
