Abstract: For some time homemaking educators have shown interest in the use of the home experience project in teaching.1 Through it, the pupil under the guidance and supervision of her teacher has the opportunity to select, plan, carry out, and evaluate home projects which originate in or grow out of classwork. The North Carolina State Department of Public Instruction in its state plan for vocational education recognizes the importance of the home experience by stating: "Supervised home experiences shall be carried by each pupil in each semester of the vocational course."2 Obviously, this practical application of classroom learnings is of utmost importance for the development of the pupil and the teacher's evaluation of the pupils' progress and her own teaching.
