A Teacher's Guide to Money Management.
John, Sadie, Comp.; Chaplin, Byron L., Jr., Comp.
This educational booklet for secondary teachers contains readings, student activities, and selected resources on money management. The authors believe that preventive money management education can help students become tomorrow's wise consumers. Parts one, two, and three comprise half of the booklet and deal, respectively, with budgeting and money management, credit consciousness, and shopping skills. Each part begins with a brief description of the topic, discussing course content and possible teaching methods, and then provides exercises, checklists, and tips on ways to stretch dollars in the various areas, all of which can be used or adapted for use with students. Part four contains suggested class activities--shopping sprees with play money, role playing situations, class discussions on famous money quotes, completing unfinished sentences, and case studies. Part five cites selected resources for consumer/marketplace education including bibliographies, newsletters, periodicals, curriculum guides, brochures, textbooks, games and audiovisuals. Handouts available from Consumer Credit Counseling are listed. A form which teachers can use to evaluate the booklet is also provided. The booklet is particularly useful to teachers just starting out who have not developed their own materials. (Author/RM)
