WEEK TWELVE: FCCLA STAR EVENT: INTERIOR DESIGN
Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America is a nonprofit national career and technical student organization for young men and women in Family and Consumer Sciences education in public and private school through grade 12 (FCCLA, 2008). This organization is the only student organization that focus on the family. Through family and consumer sciences education, important personal, work and societal issues are addressed (FCCLA, 2008). Specifically, the organization has implemented a new STAR (Students Taking Action for Recognition) Event focusing on Interior Design. The event brings together information on housing and interiors and family and consumer sciences education. For this module, you will have the opportunity to become more familiar with FCCLA (specifically a STAR Event and activity that you can do with Housing and Interior Design students) and apply concepts related to designing interior environments (our last section of the course and book.
WEEK TWELVE TASK.
The final assessment for FCSE 3790: Housing and Interior Design Methods is to complete the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) STAR Event called "Interior Design". Graduates of the Family and Consumer Sciences Education program at Utah State University are prepared to serve as FCCLA Advisers upon graduation. In order to prepare future advisers, our students complete various FCCLA STAR Events to familiarize them with the activities and assessments associated with the student organization. It is important for pre-service teachers to practice using the teaching tools that they will be expected to integrate into their student teaching experience and/or first teaching job. The FCCLA Interior Design STAR Event instructions, design scenario, and rubric can be found on FCCLA's website.
