This instructional guide for a one-half-credit technical laboratory course for grades 10-12 teaches parental responsibilities; child guidance techniques; positive role modeling and parenting practices that promote child development, health, safety, and well-being. Introductory materials consist of a course description; overview of course design; facilities, equipment, and resources; and a section on how to use the 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 in 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 creative 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).
