Teaching 21st Century Process Skills to Strengthen and Enhance Family and Consumer Sciences Education
Mosenson, Andrea B.; Fox, Wanda S.
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v103 n1 p63-69 2011
Family and consumer sciences (FCS) professionals need to be equipped with a set of strategies and tools to prepare their students for the challenges they will face in the 21st century. Nationwide, educators are integrating a set of skills deemed essential for student success in college and a career. Building upon these skills and the process areas in the National Standards for FCS Education, the authors created the 21st Century Process Skills Model and Assessment Framework. These tools, used with active learning strategies, can be incorporated into any FCS curriculum to teach and assess the 21st century process skills that can lead to student achievement and lifelong learning. (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.)
