Historical perspectives of home economics in the curriculum will be explored in order to understand the various forms in which the learning area has and does appear in contemporary school programs. Food preparation and science, nutrition, family and health and human development will be brought to life through practical and theoretical experiences. Students will have the opportunity to practise a range of Home Economics skills, whilst also examining the knowledge and understandings required of this learning area. Specific pedagogical content knowledge and highly effective classroom teaching strategies for home economics that are aligned to support positive student learning are a key focus in this unit. Further, literacy and numeracy skills and notions of sustainability will be embedded in this unit as a means of demonstrating the cross-curricular priorities and general capabilities that need to be considered by the practising teacher.
