Outline of Research Activities

Research area

Development of teaching materials and methods for home economics education for junior high school and high school students In my research, the subject of home economics is considered from a range of perspectives, such as textbooks, teaching materials, teachers and students, elements which constitute lessons, home life, society, and the environment. We also consider the most effective methods of teaching home economics in schools.
In particular, the development of teaching materials relating to actual student home life and living conditions and their practical use is investigated
These research fields will be extended to junior high schools and high schools in cooperation with teachers to verify the value of the teaching materials by considering not only teaching material development but also future home economics education. The key concepts for new home economics education are health, economy, and family.
