Native American Career Education Unit. Putting Your Money to Work.
Far West Lab. for Educational Research and Development, San Francisco, CA.
One of twelve instructional units in the Native American Career Education (NACE) program, this unit is intended to help Indian junior high school students understand how to manage money resources, both on a personal level and in the world of work. In five activities, students do exercises and small group activities in which they consider how money is used, practice check-writing and balancing a family budget, learn about the use and movement of cash, stock and other assets in a small business, learn about the process of applying for a loan, and learn about some careers which involve managing money. Related subject areas are mathematics, business, and banking. Each activity includes objectives, student materials, and suggestions to the teacher on how to use them. Student exercises consist of readings, questions to answer, games, simulations, project instructions, and other learning activities. Each activity is followed by suggestions for ways of extending learning and where appropriate, additional resources are described. Student materials may be used as master copies for reproduction or as models for material development. A test designed to measure student mastery of the main objectives is included with each unit, along with an answer key. (A guide to the whole twelve-unit program is available separately--CE 014 035.)
