Course Description, Goals & Objectives
This course focuses on managing resources to achieve individual goals; making informed consumer choices; creating and maintaining a living environment that supports the well-being of individuals; living in a global environment; making decisions related to nutrition, clothing, and housing; and managing a household. We will complete several major projects, one of the most notable being a quilt.
Attendance is important because a lot of class material is not written and lab activities are dependent on attendance. Please let me know ahead of time if you are going to miss a class in order to arrange makeup material.
Grades will be based on tests, quizzes, notebooks, projects, lab work, and daily participation. The quilting process will also be a large part of the grade.
Late Assignment Policy
Late work will be penalized for each day late.
