Talking Shop to Wise Consumers.
Kemp, Louie E., Comp.
The document is a guide to a consumer education resource unit which aims to create a teacher-student and student-community learning partnership which will actively involve all participants. Concepts, behavioral objectives, learning experiences, and generalizations are provided in a format that can be quickly viewed and easily interpreted, but the teacher is encouraged to be uninhibited and as innovative as possible. The thirteen organizing concepts are: private enterprise, values, self-actualization, priorities, market place, informed consumers, resources, resource management, resource organization, legal aspects, money management, a home in the future, and the changing family. Two-thirds of the document (75 pages) is an appendix to the unit guide, comprised of instructional materials which range from crosswords and other games to scripts for teacher-made recordings. Among the many methods and media called for in the resource unit are: lecture, class and panel discussions, observation, guest speakers, sociodrama, field trips, interviews, oral reports, brainstorming, programmed material, open-ended sentences, debates, skits, supervised study, and a variety of audio-visual media.
