Development Status Report
View the new Middle Years Human Ecology curriculum for Manitoba on the Manitoba Education website (July 2015)
Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning started the Middle Years Home Economics Curriculum renewal in November 2013. The team working on this initiative is composed of five urban and rural Home Economics teachers, a University of Manitoba representative and the project lead from the Department. Seven essential foundations will be integrated across the disciplines of study (Food, Nutrition, Clothing and Textiles, and Family Studies) with the revitalization of the Middle and Senior Years Curriculum. The new curriculum is a progression of Home Economics with a new logo, the renewed name of Human Ecology, as well as, themes that will provide flexibility for the disciplines of Food, Nutrition, Clothing and Textiles and Family Studies. Voluntary implementation of the Middle Years Human Ecology Curriculum will be in the Fall 2015. System-wide implementation of the Middle Years curriculum will be in the Fall 2016.
