Personal Finance Education Guide for Planning Secondary School Programs. Second Edition.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
This guide has been developed to help teachers plan programs that meet both individual and common needs of all students in personal finance education. It defines the skills and knowledge necessary to function as an intelligent consumer in our complex and rapidly changing economic order. The guide has been developed around five basic concepts: employment and income, money management, credit, purchase of goods and services, and rights and responsibilities in the marketplace. Comprehensive data on purchasing specific goods and services are deliberately excluded because such materials become quickly outdated. Instead, an effort has been made to correlate the economic, social, and physical factors crucial to development of consumer skills, knowledges, and attitudes. Program goals, performance indicators, suggested learning experiences, and evaluation techniques have been closely correlated with the taxonomy, or program content. Minimum competencies were determined by consensus of the teachers, students, parents, and the business community members involved in pilot test programs. Assessment of students during the past two years has provided further validation of these competencies. (Author)
