Shopping. Teaching Guide.
Florida Univ., Gainesville. Florida Cooperative Extension Service.
One in a series of consumer education materials for 4-H Club members and secondary students, this document focuses on shopping and purchasing. The series is based on the philosophy that teens need the training and guidance to develop the skills needed to become competent consumers. The shopping project is designed to acquaint students with some of the functions of the market place, to encourage them to seek additional information, to teach about some of the tools used in selling (advertising) and how to make reasonable choices, and to alert youth to the dangers and results of deceptive sales methods. The document is divided into two sections. The first part is the teacher's guide which contains statement of purpose, objectives, ideas, suggested resources, activities for learning experiences, and evaluation. The second section is the student materials which contains background information and specific learning activities. (Author/JR)
