This curriculum guide provides the teacher with materials for a course on how to make housing decisions based on eight considerations: (1) the advantages of buying versus those of renting; (2) buying and the major expenses that it entails; (3) evaluating and choosing a house; (4) methods of financing; (5) the purpose of escrow; (6) property taxes; (7) types of property insurance; and (8) planning for resale by assessing such factors as appreciation and depreciation. The teacher's section includes the key ideas, course goals, suggested resources, and learning experiences for each topic. Vocabulary lists are also given with definitions in accordance with real estate law. The types of learning activities fall into three categories: classroom discussions, research projects, and guest speakers such as attorneys, bankers, builders, and realtors. The student materials consist of an information sheet on each topic. (ELG)
