Movey, Jan
This competency-based preservice home economics teacher education module on financial management is the fourth in a set of seven modules on consumer education related to management. (This set is part of a larger series of sixty-seven modules on the Management Approach to Teaching Consumer and Homemaking Education [MATCHE]--see CE 019 901-967.) Following the module objectives and overview, four units of instruction are presented: (1) financial plan (includes lessons on alternative financial plans and savings plans); (2) planning individual and family purchases (includes lessons on consumer decision-making, appliance selection, and evaluating warranties); (3) insurance policies (with one lesson on purpose and types of policies); and (4) systems for accounting and record keeping (with one lesson). Each lesson includes a narrative summary, suggested activities, and suggested resources (readings). A unit progress test is also included for the first three units. A module pre/posttest (with answer key) concludes the document. (Workshop proceedings relating to the development of these modules are available in the ERIC system as CE 019 896-899; also available is a module on utilizing FHA-HERO as an instructional strategy to expand and strengthen the home economics instructional programs [CE 019 900].)
