The Curriculum Center for Family and Consumer Sciences
Welcome to The Curriculum Center for Family and Consumer Sciences. We celebrate 49+ years of continued quality curriculum development for family and consumer sciences educators.
There are 30 courses available in our online curriculum. Each course addresses the Texas and national standards with appropriate teaching strategies and supporting materials.
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. No. 1097......$50.00
