An Overview: How FCS Integrates the Core Academics
Newell, Becky A.
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v96 n1 p13-14 2004
No one learns in isolation; learning must be tied to real life experiences that are relevant to the student. "Integrated curriculum, interdisciplinary" and "multidisciplinary curriculum, teaming, standards" and "accountability" are terms with which every educator is familiar. "No Child Left Behind" is the current mantra, and family and consumer services (FCS) fits right into it. Core teachers become aware and surprised that FCS is a thriving "academic" subject with roots in the sciences and math, the arts, and the humanities. Once they understand FCS, teachers and administrators quickly gain new respect for it. The fact is, FCS is a key player in the education of today's students; FCS helps to guarantee that "no child is left behind." The author of this article demonstrates the many creative ways that today's FCS teachers and administrators are integrating the core academics into their curriculum.
