Developing a Resource Center in Consumer Education: An Annotated Bibliography.
Garman, E. Thomas; And Others
The rationale behind this annotated bibliography of over 1300 items is that every consumer education teacher needs numerous classroom resources to provide for the individual needs of his students, and these resources should be balanced in representing all content areas. The resource materials included, mostly booklets and pamphlets for classroom use, are arranged according to 18 basic content areas, with subdivisions for booklets and pamphlets, audiovisual materials, and learning packages for teachers and students. Topics include: the dilemma of the consumer, the consumer identified, the consumer in the American marketplace, the changing role of the consumer, buying services, sundry products, credit, clothing, food, automobiles, home furnishings and major appliances, housing money management, savings, investments, life insurance, taxes, and careers. The publication also includes three separate chapters entitled, Bibliographies, Catalogues, and Other Sources for Teaching Materials, Mailing Lists for Your Resource Center, and Journals and Magazines in Consumer Education. Criteria for selection of materials included: usefulness with secondary school students, cost and availability, and objectivity. The small number of annotations in some areas was due to limitations of time and resources. (Author/JLB)
