MBA Research and FCCLA partner in a variety of ways, including reciprocal sponsorships.
MBA Research instructional tools, particularly lesson modules (LAPs) and the Learning Center, provide strong support for students preparing to compete in FCCLA competitive events, with the exception of those focused solely on technology.
Additional work is underway to support FCCLA advisers’ efforts to prepare students for competitive events. Watch for announcements via our newsletter and on this site.
NOTE: All FCCLA advisers in member states are eligible for member pricing on all products and services. MBA Research representatives are exhibitors at the national FCCLA conference.

Not sure where to start? We can help.
1. Crosswalks are the key!
Crosswalks make it easy to select MBA Research resources that align with the content of written exams, reports, and performance events in competition. Detailed objectives are also provided for each competency, providing you and your students details about what to study. Use our crosswalks for the National Standards for Family and Consumer Sciences Education.
2. Lesson modules for deep learning
Help students master each competency in their chosen event with lesson modules (LAPs). Each includes engaging readings, activities, test items, ethical dilemmas, discussion guides, and much more. Not sure which ones you need? Use our free crosswalks.
3. Practice quizzes for each event
Use the test item bank in the Learning Center to quiz students on the competencies covered in an event. Use the crosswalks to find the test item code for each competency.
4. Think fast!
Thinking on your feet is critical in competition. Help students get comfortable with quickly analyzing a situation and voicing an educated conclusion using our Gray Zone ethical dilemma scenarios. These are available on the State’s Connection portal at no cost to educators who teach in member states. Don’t teach in a member state? We also include Gray Zone scenarios in our weekly newsletter.
5. Teamwork, communications, and collaboration
Help students develop professional skills using free lesson modules available courtesy of the Daniels Fund. Each one builds skills students need to excel in college, career, and competition.
