Product Description:

This instruction guide for teaching, learning, and developing the art of home economics is geared towards both boys and girls and was designed to be used by any teacher, regardless of personal experience. Lesson plans for each skill are laid out step-by-step, along with directions for the teacher, enabling anyone to use the course. If the teacher is unfamiliar with the lesson, they might feel more comfortable finding a friend or contact who has more knowledge in that particular area. For example, clear recipes are given for making jelly, but if you've never done this before you may find a friend who has. When discussing electricity and circuit loads in the house, it may prove useful to contact an electrician to give a short lecture. Let me reiterate that these suggestions are given, but the guide does contain enough information for any teacher to "pick it up and go." Because the course was written to be used in a co-op, as a unit study, or even just in a single classroom setting, it is thoughtfully laid out with lesson plans, supplies which should be provided by the students and those the teacher will provide, estimated length of time to completion, and any other relevant information for the lessons. Instruction sequences are provided for each subtopic lesson and include discussion questions, textual information, suggestions for activities and demonstrations, worksheets (reproducible for teaching purposes), homework (for upper level), and a comprehensive resource list. Answers are provided.

The lessons cover herbs/spices, canning, gardening, bulb-growing, dough, pies & pastry, baking, beef, port, poultry, seafood, flower arranging, sewing essentials, automotive, energy & electricity, and knots. Inside each of these you'll find a nice variety of basic concepts and topics. Revised in 2014 and expanded, the manual now includes sections on gluten-free baking and numerous references to searching Pinterest and YouTube for instructional information and ideas as well as more thorough internet resources. 201 pgs, spiral bound.
