Yoo, Jeong-Ju
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v103 n2 p35-39 2011
Family and consumer sciences (FCS) professionals educate leaders who will contribute to the well-being of individuals, families, and communities. A description of a collaborative classroom project designed to enhance students' understanding of healthy body images is shared. Students are provided with opportunities to work with their collegiate peers in FCS. In cooperative learning groups characterized by positive interdependence, students collaborated on ideas and research with peers from different areas of expertise. Fostering networks within the program effectively increased student learning and developed public health education messages. (Contains 1 table.)
