Use of Family and Consumer Sciences Coursework/Standards
Family and Consumer Sciences coursework has helped me in many different ways. A few of those ways being that it helped narrow down my career choices based upon my personality, intreterests, etc. Not only did it with that, but it also helped me understand things about myself/the world that I never knew before.
