Training Our Daughters to be Keepers at Home is a comprehensive, 7-year curriculum for ages 11 – 18 (grades 6 – 12), written by Mrs. Ann Ward
Obviously, it is aimed primarily at girls (although many who use the curriculum use it as a home economics curriculum for boys as well), and it is written from a rather conservative, American Christian perspective.
The reference “keepers at home” comes from a Bible verse (Titus 2:5)
Over the seven years, the following topics are covered:
|Godly Womanhood||Flower Arranging||Making a House a Home|
|Sewing||Basketry||Caring for the Sick & Injured|
|Cooking/Baking||Family Finances||Family Celebrations|
|Knitting||Child Development||Infant Care & Breastfeeding|
Making Greeting Cards
|Child Training||Raising Small Animals|
|Home Management||Cross Stitch||Soapmaking|
|Crocheting||Caring for the Elderly||Woman’s Health Concerns|
|Comforting the Mourning||Rug Braiding||Home Business|
This site is designed to support and encourage the teaching of Home Economics as a subject and traditional home crafts, whether or not you are using this specific curriculum. It is based on the now sadly removed, excellent information website on the TODKAH curriculum by the Ingram family.
