Abstract: With the introduction of the twelfth year into the high schools of North Carolina, the school curriculum was forced to meet needs of those students who were the "in-betweens". Vocational Education, through Homemaking and Agriculture divisions, planned a course entitled "Farm Family Living" for the three year transition period. This course was to be taught by the Vocational Homemaking and Agriculture teachers. After the three year transition period the high school homemaking teacher no longer taught those eighth grade pupils. Today in North Carolina there exist a relatively small number of junior high homemaking courses as compared with the homemaking courses for pupils in grades nine through twelve. From these junior high homemaking teachers came many questions about what units to include, which phases should be emphasized, homemaking activities suitable to grade level, and in general, how to meet the homemaking needs of this age group of pupils. The time has come when there is a need to develop a guide for the use of the junior high homemaking teachers of this state.
