Florida Univ., Gainesville. Florida Cooperative Extension Service.
This oocument, one in a series of consumer education materials prepared for 4-H Club members and secondary students, focuses on credit and money management. Because credit has both positive and negative aspects, teenagers must be informed how to use credit wisely and how to avoid getting into financial difficulty. Specific objectives are for students to realize that credit costs money, acquire an understanding of the cost terminology necessary to shop for credit, and recognize the advantages as well as the disadvantages of using credit. The document is divided into two sections. The first part is the teacher's guide which contains statement of purpose, objectives, ideas, suggested resources, learning activites, and evaluation. The second section is the student material which presents background reading and learning activities. (Author/JR)
