Course Description

   1. Utilize FCCLA programs to promote personal growth and leadership development
   2. Investigate areas for personal growth while establishing a positive self concept
   3. Practice positive interpersonal skills
   4. Analyze resources for family life
   5. Develop a plan for achieving career goals

Course Requirements
   Be a paid and active member of FCCLA
   Participate in STAR Events
   Serve as a role model to peers as a leader in the classroom, school and community
As the FCCLA adviser, I believe strongly in the benefits afforded to those involved in Family, Career and
Community Leaders of America (FCCLA). Therefore, I have integrated FCCLA into the curriculum to
strengthen the Family Consumer Sciences program at Fair Grove. I suggest that every FCS student become a
member of FCCLA. Even if you choose not be a member, you will be required to complete all assignments
whether or not they are FCCLA related.

STAR Events
Since this course serves as the starting point for most of the chapter’s community service projects, upon
registering for this class the student is signing up for competitive events in FCCLA. Throughout the course the
student will be selecting and developing a project to better their individual skills or help others in the
community. Therefore, all CFL students will be attending the Regional STAR Events competition on
Wednesday, February 1, 2012 (snow date February 8).

What to expect?
During class time you will be learning through a combination of hands on activities, laboratory experiences,
small and large group work, demonstrations, games, and class discussions. Participation is very important in
this class when we are involved in any type of activity. It is essential that you participate. Participation leads to
individual and group success.

Materials and Responsibilities
       Paper                                           Pen or Pencil
       Notebook/Binder (required)                      Red Pen

       *It is suggested that each student become a member of the class wiki in order to complete coursework.
The Wiki Contract is available to view at Please contact me if you have any
questions or concerns.

Grading Policy
o The grade scale in the student handbook will be used.
o Grades will be based on daily assignments, tests, quizzes, participation, employability traits, projects
   (group and individual), and other activities as assigned. Students should utilize the Lumen system to
   monitor their progress.

Computer Use
The computers in the classroom are school property and should be treated as such. The computers are for the
sole purpose of completing tasks I have assigned. It is not a time for students to perform personal activities
that are unrelated to class. If time allows and work for the day is completed as expected, students may be
granted privileges to access the Lumen system to check their grades and other school related items.

Advice: (These are some suggestions from Ms. Hall…)
    To keep yourself organized, use 5 tab dividers in your binder labeled as follows:
      1) Bellwork 2)Assignments               3) Notes       4)Projects   5) Procedures
    Use class time wisely to work on assignments and projects.
    The final for this class will require you to use the knowledge you have gained throughout the semester.
      Keep graded assignments, tests, quizzes, and handouts as a reference and study guide.
    Bring your necessary supplies daily.
