Mini-Course on Consumer Education Teacher's Guide.
Hawaii State Dept. of Education, Honolulu. Office of Instructional Services.
Consumer Education is a mini-course designed for all seniors in high school. It was developed on the premise that a student needs to evolve his own value system, develop a sound decision-makingprocedure based upon his values, evaluate alternatives in the marketplace and get the best buys for his money, understand his rights and responsibilities as a consumer in our society, and fulfill his role in directing a free enterprise system. A consumer education curriculum guide, teacher's kit, and four inservice ETV programs have been prepared to assist teachers and students in this learning adventure. This teacher's guide presents an overview of the curriculum, stating objectives and procedures; a bibliography of supplementary readings and multimedia kits; pre and post tests for each of the five units; and the units themselves. Unit One: General Principles of Consumer Purchasing. Unit Two: Consumer Credit (Types of credit, when and where to borrow money). Unit Three: General Principles of Fraud, Quackery, and Deception. Unit Four: Consumer Laws and Services. Unit Five: Consumer Rights and Responsibilities. Each unit states generalizations, concepts, objectives, teaching strategies, and includes a bibliography. (JMB)
