Federal/Provincial Consumer Education and Plain Language Task Force (Canada).
Project Real World, a self-contained, activity-based Canadian consumer science program, provides students with systematic instruction in economic living skills. It gives students in grades 10-12 an orientation to the economic realities and opportunities in society. The program helps students understand the marketplace; manage resources; apply values, responsibilities, and considerations; act responsibly as consumer-citizens; participate in economic/government systems; and recognize enterpreneurship career opportunities. This module, the fourth in a series of five, contains four sections: (1) self-inventory--values, motivation, self-confidence, interest and skill inventory; (2) career planning--options, changing work world, women and work, lifelong learning, and career plan; (3) entrepreneurship--community role, self-exploration, business development, business management, cooperation, and social responsibility; and (4) getting a job--resumes, job searches, and interviews. Each section may contain an introduction, purpose, scope, "for the teacher," related content, choices and challenges, and activities. Many activities are community oriented. Decision making, resource management, and citizen participation are emphasized. The activities in the core program are identified in the table of contents. Sections and individual activities can be used as masters and two appendices containing a list of resource organizations and tips for working in small groups are included.
