Specific Sections

These best practice recommendations are a fundamental part of enhancing experiences/opportunities in Human Ecology programs/classrooms.


Individual Curriculum Framework of Outcomes

Grades 9-12 Human Ecology

The Human Ecology full credit courses provide outcomes from three areas of study (family studies, food and nutrition, textile arts and design).

Grades 9-12 Family Studies
Grades 9-12 Textile Arts and Design
Grades 9-12 Food and Nutrition
Grades 11 and 12 Environmental Design (Formerly Housing)

The framework of outcomes provides flexibility to apply to all the environmental design domains: architecture, landscape architecture, interior design, regional and urban planning. The human ecology education perspective on this framework of outcomes focusses on the interrelationships among people and housing and interior design in multiple dimensions.
