Information About Online Curriculum

Could it get any easier? In our 50th year of developing curriculum and our 8th year of online delivery of materials, we're continuing to meet the needs of Family and Consumer Sciences teachers across the nation. With our new look, new courses, updates to existing courses, and smooth navigation, teachers have the support they need to meet the challenges of today's education.

Our new design makes navigating through the sections of all 36 courses easier than ever. Each course addresses the national and Texas standards with appropriate teaching strategies and supporting materials. With one subscription, the teacher has access to instructional strategies, PowerPoints®, reproducible teaching aids, rubrics, and links to quality Internet resources and videos. All of this empowers the teacher with the tools needed to engage students in active learning.

  • Based on the objectives of both the National Standards for Family and Consumer Sciences and the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills.
  • Organized so the teacher can follow the outline and be assured that all student essential skills have been developed.
  • Labeled for national and Texas standards; Pre-PAC correlation; FCCLA and TAFE correlation; type of activity; topic key word; correlation to language arts, math, science, and social studies objectives; student technology usage; and additional resources.
