Consumer Education: A Model of an Interdisciplinary K-12 Curriculum Approach to Consumer Education Processes.
Anderson, C. Raymond; Bongiovanni, L. M.
This model curriculum outlines learning objectives for teaching consumer education processes in grades K through 12; it thereby represents an organized structure for consumer education. It's an interdisciplinary guide designed to integrate consumer awareness experiences into all subject areas as natural components of existing subjects. For each of three grade levels, K-4, 5-8, and 9-12, general and operational objectives are stated in which the activities of (1) planning, (2) buying, (3) borrowing, (4) protecting, (5) sharing, and (6) investing are provided. Specifically, grades K-4 are devoted to foundation experiences, grades 5-8 deal with knowledge and skills, and grades 9-12 are concerned with application experiences. Along with objectives and activities, resource materials and possible evaluation means are also suggested. (Author/CP)
