Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1969 
84 p. 

A 3-year curriculum to be offered by a comprehensive high school to prepare graduates for a wide range of occupations growing out of the knowledge and skills of home economics was designed and implemented. The following curriculum was developed: (1) sophomore year--English, American history, biology, mathematics, orientation to the working world and introduction to clothing construction, typing, and physical education, (2) junior year--English, problems of democracy, recordkeeping and institutional housekeeping, food preparation and quantity foods, clothing workshops, and physical education, and (3) senior year--English, world cultures, health (elective), work experience in two areas, and physical education. Thirty-seven students participated in the program the first year, 81 the second year, and 81 the third year, and changes resulting from evaluation were incorporated each year. It was concluded that boys and girls with varying levels of ability can be trained in occupations growing out of home economics knowledges and skills and that a 2- or 3-year curriculum can be implemented in the comprehensive high school.
