Abstract: There has been a feeling that the high school homemaking departments should help pupils carry on common household tasks with understanding, increasing competence, and creative ability; and it should be a center of true-to-life activities and managerial experiences. This feeling has resulted in the building of many homemaking cottages on school grounds throughout North Carolina to be used as the homemaking department. These cottages should be used to the fullest extent with each pupil having a part in the management of the cottage. To enrich the managerial and group living experience, it is the belief of the writer that actual residence in the cottage for short periods of time should be planned. Since such an experience has not been common in the high school program, the present study was undertaken to develop and to evaluate the overnight stay as a technique for teaching homemaking to the high school girl.
