Consumer Education Lesson Plans.
Illinois State Board of Education, Springfield.
The Illinois State Board of Education in cooperation with the Illinois Consumer Education Association produced this lesson plan book as a resource for teachers as they implement the consumer education mandate in secondary schools. Classroom instruction ideas, techniques, and lessons were provided by teachers from Illinois. A committee of consumer education teachers selected 22 lesson plans for inclusion in this publication. The first four sections present lessons in the required components of the consumer education mandate: (1) budgeting; (2) installment purchasing; (3) comparison of prices; and (4) the role of the consumer in the economy. Learning objectives, materials needed, activities, suggested grade level, sources of information, and evaluation for each exercise are provided. The fifth section contains projects and activities that relate to various components of consumer education. Two appendices are included: a list of advisory committee members and contributing teachers and a description of the Illinois consumer education mandate. (NLA)
