Continental Illinois National Bank and Trust Co., Chicago.
The guide was designed for use by leaders of adult groups working in the area of personal money management. The content of the guide (presented in 10 lessons) includes the following areas reported to be most pressing by persons competent in the field of money management who counsel middle and lower-income groups: the role of advertising in the consumer's world, budgeting as a tool for economic planning, the use and abuse of credit, consumer protection against deceptive sales practices, and savings and checking accounts in money management. An introduction explains the use and organization of the guide. The 10 lessons center around the problem situtations of a fictitious family which form the basis for group participation and discussion of common problems. Included for each lesson are: purposes, list of materials needed, the situation, suggested questions, points of emphasis, activities, and problems (with answers) for completion. The three appendixes provide information and learning activities on truth in lending, checking accounts, and saving accounts. Student workbooks containing the situations, specific problems, and blank forms for use with the appended lessons were intended to accompany the guide and are available from the publisher.
