Abstract: Pupil behavior indicating a lack of interest in learning as observed in home economics classes was analyzed to find the cause of lack of interest. With these causes in mind, a survey was made of literature in home economics education to find suggestions for developing and maintaining interest in learning. Six of these suggestions were used by the writer in a study of the selection, cost, care, and construction of clothing. The study revealed that where there was pupil interest in learning already, it was maintained. Interest in learning was developed in other cases. But the writer feels that there are pupils who need competent guidance in finding, developing and enriching their interest.
