Consumer Education: Consumer Education I and Consumer Education II. Course Objectives, Content Analysis, Supporting Objectives and Content Generalizations.
Crow, Karen, Comp.; Martin, Joan, Ed.
Consumer education course objectives, content analysis, supporting objectives, and content generalizations are presented in this teacher's guide for Consumer Education 1 and 2 for the San Diego Unified School District. Course objectives are aimed at several areas of consumer and family studies: consumer education, cultural awareness, human potential (including sex stereotyping), and career education. A grid is included to summarize and show quickly how each course objective relates to these four emphases. A course rationale, description, objectives, and goals are given for Consumer Education 1 and 2. Areas studied under content analysis include: life styles; decision making--consumer behavior; consumer in the economy; rights and responsibilities; money management; savings; borrowing; buying (food marketplace, clothing, transportation, housing and home furnishings); environment; and employment and employability. Suggested time sequences are also listed. These same areas are then considered from the standpoint of objectives and accompanying content generalizations. (CT)
