Private Sphere: History of Home Economics

Students identify and describe the history of home economics and how that history shaped and defined the role of women. Then they explore the home economics manuals and home economic articles which are available online at Hearth: Home Economics Archive. Students also share with the class items that surprised them why these items surprised them and also what they say about the role of women at that time.
