Edmondson, Dorothy Jean; Swanson, Bettye B.
The guide presents suggested learning concepts, experiences, and references for home economics educators in the planning and organization of secondary level consumer and homemaking programs. The suggestions are based on questionnaires and interviews with teachers and administrators involved in this program. The guide's main focus is on the process of designing a program that would meet the student's needs and consists of 17 subject areas which are presented alphabetically: advertising; appliances; clothing purchasing; consumer purchasing; credit; estate planning; food buying; furniture and accessories; housing; insurance; management of the dual role; money management; recreation; responsibilities, obligations, and protection of the consumer; savings and investment; taxes; and transportation. Each subject area begins with information on its general purpose, objective, student references, teacher references, and additional sources of information. This is followed by the guide itself which consists of six columns presenting the following information: concept, classroom experiences, resource person, related experiences, and teacher-student references. Form letters sent to participants, a time table for evaluating the units, forms used for the evaluation, a list of references, and sources of inexpensive information are appended. (EC)
