Consumer Education: How to Conduct Community Consumer Education Nights.
Lowe, Ross E.; Tresch, Patricia
The guide outlines activities through which students, teachers, and administrators can initiate and implement a program providing an opportunity for parents and others in the community to visit the school and receive instruction from area experts on consumer education topics. The suggestions are based on experience at Western Illinois University but modifications have been made so that the plan can also be used in high schools. Twelve steps for planning and conducting community consumer education nights are detailed for the consumer education teacher. Information for the principal or other school administrator stresses the public service value of the programs. Other instructions are for class committees (courtesy, promotion, and audio visual), the coordinator (student-chosen assistant to the teacher and treasurer), and the speakers' assistants (who function as a program committee). Samples of forms, letters, and promotional materials used in planning and conducting the program are included. (Author/MS)
