Planning Guide for Consumer Education, Grades K-12.
Framingham State Coll., MA.; Westborough Public Schools, MA.
The guide to planning a consumer education program for K-12 was developed by teachers in a Massachusetts school district during a series of workshops; direction was provided by the results of a parent questionnaire. The document is comprised of a resource guide and three outlines of concepts and generalizations to be developed in consumer education, with corresponding learning experiences suggested. There is an outline for each of three grade levels: K-4, 5-8, and 9-12. The resource guide, which comprises the second half of the document, lists textbooks, curriculum guides, audiovisual and multimedia materials, magazines, bibliographies and directories, learning packages, government publications, pamphlets, booklets, and articles. Sources for these materials are given, and, in some cases, prices are indicated. The resource guide includes a list of instructional materials developed in the workshops, for use by local teachers.
