Apparel. Teacher's Instructional Guide.
This instructional guide for a one-half credit technological laboratory course for grades 10-12 focuses on apparel from the perspectives of personal decision making related to apparel, the apparel industry, and career preparation. Introductory materials are a course description; overview of course design; facilities, equipment, and resources; and how to use the instructional guide. Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for Home Economics Education are presented in a two-column format with numbered general knowledge and skills statements in the left column and related statements of expected student performance on the right. Sample block plans and a block planning master illustrate one way to carry out the course. The instructional strategies section allots two pages for strategies addressing each statement of expected student performance. Each strategy has a number and header designation. Examples of headers are brainstorming, case study, class discussion, game, group activity, laboratory experience, research, role play, and skit. A light bulb icon beside a header indicates that creative teaching techniques are suggested in another section. A notes column on each page displays information and icons that point out where teaching aids have been used and other pertinent information. A list of resources is provided. Other sections provide supervised career-connections experiences, blended activities, creative ideas, TAAS objectives and proficiency, bibliography, and teaching aids (transparency masters, student information sheets, activity sheets, assessment devices, and other tools).
