Gebo, Emma M., Ed.; And Others
This curriculum contains three one-semester courses for use in home economics classes in Idaho. The nutrition and foods course is designed to address nutrition and personal life-style. Content emphasis is on food preparation techniques, meal management skills, consumer skills, the impact of nutrition on our lives, and career options in nutrition and related fields. The parenting and child development course is designed to address parenting skills and choices. Content emphasis is on parenting decisions, stages in child development, relationships within families, appropriate family coping strategies, evaluation of child care services, and careers in child development and parenting-related areas. The apparel and housing course is designed as a single-semester course that incorporates much of the subject matter that was previously addressed in two separate semester-length offerings in clothing and housing. The course covers apparel and housing decisions made by individuals and families. Emphasis is on skills in planning, acquiring, and maintaining apparel and housing, application of art principles, and use of related equipment. Hands-on experiences are provided in both apparel and housing. Each course contains a course description, scope and sequence, course outline, competency with related subcompetency, suggested learning experiences, and resources. (KC)
