Indiana Resource Guide for Consumer Education and Home Management: Working Papers.
Indiana Research Coordinating Unit, Indianapolis.
The guide presents units of instruction for secondary consumer education and home management education which were developed at a workshop. The subject areas covered by the units, their teaching time, and suggested grade level areas are as follows: (1) organizing resources (one to two weeks, grade 7), (2) making personal and consumer decisions (two parts, each three to four weeks, grade 8), (3) managing human resources within the family (three to four weeks, grade 9), (4) managing family finances for development of purchasing power, financial security, and knowledge of family economic activity (four to five weeks, grade 10), and (5) educating the consumer for managing the family's resources (one semester, high school, non-majors or non-minors in home economics). Each unit divides the subject area into concepts which are further divided into sub-concepts. For each sub-concept, objectives are presented followed by a list of generalizations with corresponding learning experiences. The learning experiences include a wide variety of individual and group activities. Some activities are based on the materials listed in the comprehensive multimedia bibliographies which follow all but the last unit. (MS)
