FCCLA Purposes Due Dates/Important Dates to Remember
Focus on Children Includes great elements from the child development and parenting curriculum. Work this event in as a class project Use event rubric as a guide to create a criterion based grading scale rubric. Group or individual project Great end of the semester project Encompasses many past learned skills and concepts from the whole course. Can scale down the project down to use in FACS course By completing projects in class it may inspire students to join the FCCLA chapter.
Life Event Planning Use in consumer education unit of FACS or in the semester long Personal Family Finance course. Students will have to use what they learned about needs, wants, and values and put that knowledge into practice. Students can use the Internet to do comparison shopping method during a class period. This event turned into a project will incorporate basic math skills and literacy skills when putting the portfolio together. Gives students some price shock when calculating just how much it costs to move out on their own or redecorating their room. Opens up discussion for furthering education and the importance of a solid future career.
Entrepreneurship Have students create a business using the guidelines in the entrepreneurship event of the STAR events manual. It is great for the creative students Allows for integration of skills learned in Math, English, and Business Education classes. This can be used in FACS or Personal Family Finance Great in Foods and Nutrition class for them to design a business based on a venue that sells food. The product could be prepared one day as a food lab. Fellow classmates can perform taste tests on products produced by the business.
Shows students how to apply what they learned in the FACS curriculum as a way to help improve real life situations. Allows students to network with people in the community. School and community are working together for common goal. Examples: Our local FCCLA is helping to collect books to start our small towns local library.
