The Curriculum Center for Family and Consumer Sciences
Some things do not change. There may be new courses, new standards, and new students, but the fundamentals of family and consumer sciences remain rock solid. The materials in Today's Life Skills can be incorporated into a variety of courses, or they can be used for youth groups or any population needing basic life skills. Each module found in the eight units includes background information for the teacher, teaching strategies organized by age of audience, learning activities and answers, and reproducible teaching aids. The accompanying CD includes PowerPoint slides for each unit.

There are 23 courses available in our online curriculum. Each course addresses the Texas and national standards with appropriate teaching strategies and supporting materials.
Welcome to The Curriculum Center for Family and Consumer Sciences. We celebrate 45+ years of continued quality curriculum development for family and consumer sciences educators.
