Family and Consumer Sciences Education. Missouri's Show-Me Standards and Vocational Education Competencies Cross Reference. Main Report [and] Mini Report.
Tieman, Rebecca; Burns, Stacey
These two documents deal with the relationship between Missouri's Show-Me Standards (the standards defining what all Missouri students should know upon graduation from high school) with the vocational competencies taught in secondary-level family and consumer science (FACS) education courses. The first document, which is a database documenting the common ground that has existed for years between the academic skills and vocational competencies in the area of FACS education, is in the form of a three-column table in which duty band and task statements in the following areas of FACS education are cross-referenced to academic knowledge (content) and performance (goal) statements: child care provider/assistant; child development, care, and guidance; clothing and textiles (intermediate and advanced); contemporary living; core employment skills; custom sewing; exploratory FACS; FACS; family/consumer resource management; family/individual health; family living and parenthood; fashion/fabric consultant; food service worker; housing, home furnishings, and equipment; industrial sewing; and nutrition and wellness. In the second document, the same FACS duty bands and task statements are cross-referenced to Missouri's Show-Me Standards knowledge and performance statements applicable to the following curriculum areas: mathematics; communication skills; science; social studies; health and physical education; and fine arts.
