Audio-Visual Materials in Adult Consumer Education: An Annotated Bibliography.
Forgue, Raymond E.; And Others
Designed to provide a quick but thorough reference for consumer educators of adults to use when choosing audio-visual materials, this annotated bibliography includes eighty-five titles from the currently available 1,500 films, slidesets, cassettes, records, and transparencies. (Materials were rejected because they were out-of-date; not relevant to adults; superficial or not objective in their treatment of the issues; offensive to sexual, religious, racial, or ethnic groups; or too complex for a typical adult audience.) Eleven consumer topics are covered as follow: (1) general interests and multi-topical; (2) fraud and deception; (3) consumer services; (4) food and nutrition; (5) sundry, clothing, and dangerous products; (6) credit; (7) energy and conservation; (8) autos and transportation; (9) housing, home furnishings, and appliances; (10) money management; and (11) financial security and taxation. Bibliographic information for each item includes title, media form, year, sponsor, source for purchase or rental, and price. The fifty-to-one-hundred-word annotations give summaries, evaluation, objectives, and audience suitability. Starred entries are available to Virginia residents through their local extension agents from the Film Library at the Learning Resource Center at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.
