Teaching Aids for Consumer and Homemaking Programs.
Spitze, Hazel Taylor; And Others
The volume contains instructional materials for high school consumer education classes. The materials were produced at a workshop and were designed to introduce excitement and enjoyment in the learning process and to serve the slow reader. The first section contains an introduction to simulations and games in consumer education and descriptions of teaching techniques developed in the workshop. The second section begins with a statement of consumer education and the literacy Problem and continues with a 191-item annotated bibliography (with subject index) of low reading level materials. The annotations include grade level, cost, length, source, and comments about contents. The remainder of the volume provides examples of low reading level materials with suggestions for classroom use, produced by teachers in the workshop. The selections include stories, skits, essays, letters, poetry, and textbook style prose. The authors tried to make the writing concrete and personal, adult in interest but simple in sentence structure and vocabulary at a third to fifth grade reading level. Participants at the workshop are listed and their names also accompany their contributions throughout the volume. (Author/MS)
