Abstract: This study was an attempt to develop a motivational approach to family-planning education through the teaching of home economics. The rationale for a motivational approach lies in the need to inculcate high fertility groups with the idea that family planning is a necessary condition for the family, if it is to attain the desired quality of life. The three major components of the study were: 1. To design a model for teaching family planning through the following areas of home economics: nutrition and health, housing, clothing, and child development and family relations. The model seeks to introduce motivational appeals for family planning through these areas of home economics, and to introduce effective teaching methods appropriate to the educational level of the audiences and facilities of the educational settings. 2. To evaluate the usefulness and applicability of the family-planning teaching model. 3. To revise the teaching model and introduce the necessary changes suggested in the evaluation.
