You!!! The Consumer. Consumer Education Curriculum Guide.
The guide for a course in consumerism contains objectives, directions for use, and seven minilessons. The lesson outlines are designed for 45 to 90 minute instructional segments and deal briefly with the following subjects: credit, insurance, budgeting, car buying, food buying, housing, and consumer rights and responsibilities. Each lesson includes a list of components ideas, a 10-item objective questionnaire with answer key (designed to introduce the lesson and stimulate discussion), suggested activities related to the subject, a bibliography, and multimedia materials (list of sources and some illustrations of ideas presented in the lesson). The guide concludes with a comprehensive 10-page bibliography listing items in these categories: pamphlets, leaflets, periodicals, books (including paperback editions), free and inexpensive references and materials, other sources of consumer information, films, filmstrips, slides, and consumer classics. Most of the items in the bibliography were published prior to 1970. (Author/MS)
