This teacher's guide for consumer education, one in a series of consumer resources, provides learning activities for secondary students and 4-H Club members.

Based on this philosophy, the materials are developed to give teens the training and guidance to develop the skills needed to become competent consumers. The document is divided into two sections. The first section, the teacher's guide, includes a statement of purpose, objectives, ideas, suggested resources, and a suggested discussion outline for individual learning activities. The student materials in the second section provide background information and specific learning activities which revolve around topics such as advertising, shopping, credit, consumer responsibility, and the metric system.
