Life Insurance for Consumers: A Teacher's Guide. A Teacher Inservice Module for Secondary Level Consumer Education Units in Home Economics, Business Education, Social Studies and Related Areas.
This teacher-oriented learning module for secondary level consumer education teachers, the first in a series of three, was developed to provide information on life insurance and ideas for conveying this content to students. The module begins with a definition and general goals of consumer economics, an overview, a pre-test, a performance objective regarding insurance from the Michigan Guidelines in Consumer Economics, and performance objectives and key ideas relative to each of the nine objectives. The next portion of the module covers the nine performance objectives and for each one (varying from three to fifteen pages in length) includes some or all of the following: key idea and student learning activities correlated with information summaries, tables, and worksheets. The nine content areas covered are as follow: the insurance concept, managing risk, what life insurance is, who needs life insurance, amount of life insurance needed, types of life insurance, choosing the type of policy, shopping for life insurance, and policy options and provisions. A posttest and a list of sources for additional information conclude this module. The appendix contains the pre- and posttest answer key, and congressional testimony on the Consumer Insurance Information and Fairness Act. (EM)
