Week FIVE INTRODUCTION.
FCS teachers are encouraged to use the National Standards for Family and Consumer Sciences as a guide for the development of curriculum for secondary FCS students. Each state can have other standards that are specific for the learners in that state, but the national standards are an overarching tool for teachers to use to assess learning and the overall outcomes of FCS courses.
*Based on Bloom et al.'s (1956) and Anderson & Krathwohl (2000) research related the Taxonomy of Educational Objectives.
ASSESSING & MEASURING LEARNING.
To provide students direction in the process of learning, teachers can develop objectives that provide purpose for the learning activities integrated into the classroom experience. Specifically, Bloom et al.'s (1956), Mager (1997) and a recent update of the Taxonomy of Educational Objectives (Anderson and Krathwohl, 2000).
FROM THE TEXT.
For this course module, students will read Chapter 3: Bodies in Motion in The Third Teacher: 79 Ways You Can Use Design to Transform Teaching and Learning by Third Teacher Plus and Cannon Design. Teachers can assess students based on a variety of outcomes and course objectives. For family and consumer sciences, national standards have been developed to guide instruction. By using measurable outcomes/objectives, teachers can assess a learning focused on a variety of learning domains (cognitive, psychomotor, or affective).
