Insurance Curriculum Guide for High School Consumer Education and Various Other Courses.
The Insurance Department and the Department of Education of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania collaborated on the insurance guide intending to present basic information about the insurance industry and its regulations in Pennsylvania. Presented in a format appropriate to existing curriculum needs and students' skills at the secondary level, the insurance curriculum is composed of six sections: an introduction to insurance, automobile insurance, medical care insurance, disability income insurance, life insurance, and property insurance. It can be taught in a 9 to 12 week course. The six sections can be integrated into social studies, consumer education, mathematics, vocational education, home economics, industrial arts classes, and occupational planning sessions. Each of the units consists of vocabulary list, the generalizations and concepts to be taught, and an outline of performance objectives and learning activities. The document concludes with a six-page bibliography of printed materials and films about the insurance industry. (Author/BP)
