Feldman, Robert; Idleman, Hillis K.
The module is designed to give students a comprehensive picture of housing and how to get dollar value when in the housing marketplace. Further, the module acquaints students with the work that Federal, State, and local government is doing in the housing field and how they and their families can benefit from government help. As a result of using the module, students should: become familiar with the kinds of housing available; learn how to meet their housing needs; choose the kind best suited to meet their needs; learn about mortgages and obtaining loans; recognize the impact of economic conditions on the housing market; learn the procedures for selling a house; learn about the government's role in developing housing needs; become familiar with the operation of cooperative and condominium housing; learn about mobile homes; and make judgments about housing based upon sound information and their own value system. Each of the 52 units is headed by a question, to which the answers are presented under the headings of: understanding, suggested pupil and teacher activities, and source. (Author/NH)
