You the Counsumer and Big Business. Middle School Level.
Gease, Susan; And Others
This curriculum guide on consumer education is designed to be utilized fully or partially at the teacher's discretion. The bases for the units are 17 fundamental cognitive skills: observing; recalling; noticing differences and similarities; ordering; grouping; concept labeling; classifying; concept testing; inferring causes, effects, and feelings; concluding; generalizing; questioning; anticipating; and making choices. With each unit's main goal in mind (to clarify and extend the students' concept of the individual consumer and his relationship to big business), the unit is subdivided by columns into its objectives, suggested implementation activities, thinking skill processes, curriculum relationships, psychomotor relationships, and affective relationships. Lists of films, filmstrips, careers, lesson plans, books, reports, periodicals, sources for information on business tycoons, local speakers and field trips, and government publications are provided.
