Our world is changing fast. There's always a new and improved gadget to help us keep in touch and stay organized. We're bombarded by messages about what to eat, how to exercise, and what products to buy. As we approach adulthood, how do we learn the skills and savvy to make the right choices?
Family and consumer science teachers show students how to manage the adult challenges of career, family, and day-to-day living. They help students learn the skills they need -- from shopping for nutrition bars and fuel-efficient cars to negotiating a raise and resolving a family dispute -- to enjoy healthy, productive lives.
