Consumer Education: Curriculum Guide for Ohio. Grades K-12.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Vocational Education.
Units for regular high school and elementary school students are included with consumer education units for educable mentally retarded and socio-economically disadvantaged students. Selected bibliographies accompany each unit. The guide is meant to help the teacher with ideas, not to be a structured sequence to follow. It is designed to examine the consumer's alternatives, both when he is earning money and when he is spending it, with emphasis on responsibilities, motivating forces, and the resultant effect of consumer decisions on the total economy. Each unit has been developed around economic system, income procurement, consumer behavior determinants, consumer alternatives, roles, rights, and responsibilities, and community resources.
