Thelen, Judy
This teacher-oriented learning module for secondary level consumer education teachers, the second in a series of three, was developed to provide information on credit and ideas for conveying this content to students. The module begins with a definition and general goals of consumer education, an overview and rationale, five performance objectives (each are divided into five to eight sub-objectives), and a pre-test. The next portion of the module covers the five performance objectives and for each one (varying from five to fourteen pages in length) includes the following: sub-objectives, content, and related student learning activities. The five content areas covered are as follow: how much credit you can afford, creditworthiness, credit sources, credit cards, and when you cannot pay your bills. A posttest and a list of supplemental resources conclude this module. The appendix includes the following: student learning activities, and sample tables regarding the calculation of interest on loans; a credit application form; a consumer credit crossword puzzle; an article reprint on credit buying; the pre- and posttest answer key; two transparency masters; and information on the legal doctrine of holder-in-due course.
