Travel and the Consumer 1974.
Idleman, Hillis K.
The State Education Department of New York has prepared a series of modules--Expanded Programs in Consumer Education. "Travel and the Consumer" is the most recently produced module. It can be used as a discrete unit or with others in the series. The module stresses the importance of making travel creative, getting the most for one's money, seeking out things to see and do close at hand, and using the most economical forms of travel. The format used in the document consists of using three vertical columns to present the information. The first column presents one of the 23 travel-related questions under the title "Understandings" and offers possible answers. The second column lists suggested pupil and teacher activities; the third column cites sources of information for assisting in the execution of the suggested activities. Ten of the ideas presented are emphasized in illustrations. The document encourages using the forms of travel which use the least of our resources while paying the biggest dividends in renewal of spirit and body. (Author/AG)
