Manpower Training Resource Supplement to the Consumer Education Curriculum Guide for Ohio.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Vocational Education.
The guide contains consumer education learning activities and references for use with Manpower Development and Training Act trainees. It is organized in six sections, each dealing with one of the following basic concepts: (1) the economic system, (2) income procurement, (3) consumer alternatives, (4) consumer behavior determinants, (5) roles, rights, and responsibilities, and (6) community resources. Each section begins with the statement of an overall objective and a graphic representation of the basic concept covered. Several other objectives are included for each section. For each objective within a section, a table is presented which lists concepts, suggested learning and evaluation experiences, and suggested resources. A 10-page bibliography lists instructional materials catalogs, charts, periodicals, pamphlets (on clothing and appliances, credit, foods, economics and investments, insurance, and money management), trainee manuals and workbooks, trainee programed materials, teacher manuals and guides, and teacher references (texts, special kits, and source lists). Also included is a glossary of 61 consumer education terms. Names of the members of Ohio's State Advisory Committee on Consumer Economic Education and of the committee of teachers and teacher educators, developers of the guide, are listed. (MS)
