Consumer Education in Eighth Grade Core and Mathematics 1970. Curriculum Guide.
Schaum, June; And Others
This curriculum guide outlines a one-to-two week consumer education unit for eighth grade students. It was written in response to Illinois Senate Bill 977 which required that all students in grades 8-12 be given instruction in consumer education. The lessons were developed to involve the students in stating problems, writing definitions, establishing goals, and suggesting activities. Specific objectives are given for each lesson, along with some suggested student activities. The lessons included are: understanding a definition of a consumer; individual consumer goals; banking, writing checks, and simple interest; installment purchases; budgeting; and comparison of prices and discounts.
