Home Economics Job Training Resource Supplement to the Consumer Education Curriculum Guide for Ohio.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Vocational Education.
The learning experiences in consumer education were developed to be used by job-training teachers as an integral part of the vocational home economics job-training curriculum. The activities were designed to provide basic understanding of: the nature and function of the American economic system; the roles of producers, consumers, and citizens; and the use and availability of community resources at the local, State, and national level. The guide is organized in six sections, each dealing with one of the following basic concepts: (1) the economic system, (2) income procurement, (3) consumer behavior determinants, (4) consumer alternatives, (5) roles, rights, and responsibilities, and (6) community resources. Each section begins with a graphic representation of the basic concept covered. Several objectives are included for each section. For each objective within a section, a table is presented which lists concepts, suggested learning and evaluation experiences, suggested resources, and generalizations about the objective. A four-page selected bibliography of books, pamphlets, periodicals, filmstrips, and films is also included. Names of the members of Ohio's State Advisory Committee on Consumer Economic Education and of the job training teachers who developed the guide are listed. (Author/MS)
