Curriculum Materials in Consumer Education. Volume I.
Brown, Marjorie M.; Strom, Sharon M.
Five problems dealing with consumer education are presented in this book: (1) Why study human behavior? (2) Recognizing consumer problems in American society; (3) Recognizing that price and brand name are not necessarily measures of quality; (4) Increasing purchasing power and personal satisfaction through making a search for information; and (5) Determining our wants and planning for them. Each problem is dealt with at three conceptual levels. Curriculum materials for each of the levels include objectives, directed activities, suggestions for feedback to students, a list of materials required for teaching each stage, and teacher references. Supporting materials include comparative prices, case studies, worksheets, and special references. (MH)
