An analytical study on the food preparation and evaluation in the high school Home Economics classes - concerning on the Kyong-Ki province high schools -
Home economics is a very important part of high school curriculum. The goal of home economics is to enable the students to get necessary knowledge and skills of household affairs, so they can manage their household tasks easily. This study was investigated to know the present condition of high school food preparation classes and evaluation method and to find out the problems related to the evaluation. Ninety four teachers from Kyong-Ki province answered the questionnaire. The results are as follows: They thought that the most appropriate food preparation classes should be at least 4-6 in a year. But in practice they only had 1-2 classes because of the time and budget. Because most of the teachers wanted the students to apply their knowledge to real life, they mainly chose Korean foods instead of western foods. It may help the students understand the Korean traditional food. Most of the schools needed additional gas oven ranges, microwave ovens and water purifiers. Most teachers(87.50%) evaluated the students in groups. This was due to limited time and lack of objective evaluation methods. So it is suggested that the Ministry of Education must make the measure of objective evaluation and allot more home economics hours at high school curriculum.
