Williamson, Linda, Ed.
This guide contains information to facilitate the teaching of consumer education at all levels. It focuses on making students more aware of how the economic structure functions and the forces that help shape the free enterprise system. Materials are divided into three sections by educational level: K-3, 4-6, and 7-12. Concepts covered include the economic system; roles, rights, and responsibilities; consumer influences; money management; insurance; credit; purchasing; quackery, fraud, and deception; consumer assistance and protection; health, education, and leisure; and career decisions. The section for grades 7-12 includes all the above topics; the other two sections cover selected topics. Information on each concept is organized into this format: goal, outline of content with corresponding student objectives, activities, evaluation, and resources. (YLB)
