The sixth grade instructional unit, part of a field-tested grade school level career education series, is designed to assist learners in understanding how present experiences relate to past and future ones. Before the main body of the lessons is described, field testing results are reported and key items are presented: the concepts, the estimated time for delivering the lessons, the vocabulary introduced, the resources required, and the instructor preparation tasks. Instructional procedures are presented in three sections--an introduction, learners' tasks, and a summary. Some supplemental activities are presented, strategy and resource profiles are provided, and assessment procedures outlined. Intended to develop skills in buying products and in home improvement and maintenance, the unit provides experiences in discovering product information, identifying misleading advertising, mail order buying, and in maintaining and improving the home. The 10-hour unit, suitable for group instruction, relates primarily to the subject areas of math, art, and language arts. Sample classroom materials, forms, tests, and transparency masters are included. (MW)
