California State Univ., Fresno. Dept. of Home Economics.; California Polytechnic State Univ., San Luis Obispo. Dept. of Home Economics.
This competency-based preservice home economics teacher education module on incorporating the consumer approach in homemaking classes is the fourth in a set of four core curriculum modules on consumer approach to homemaking education. (This set is part of a larger series of sixty-seven modules on the Management Approach to Teaching Consumer and Homemaking Education [MATCHE]--see CE 019 901-967.) Following the module objective and overview, four units of instruction are presented: (1) who are your pupils? (includes lessons on obtaining facts about your pupils, about families, and about communities); (2) what are your pupils' consumer needs? (includes lessons on assessment of pupils' consumer needs, understanding your pupils' consumption patterns, and available consumer resources); (3) meeting your pupils' consumer needs in the classroom (includes lessons on meeting your pupils' needs and interests, and planning meaningful and relevant lessons and activities); and (4) what does the teacher need to know (includes lessons on available resources and concepts of consumer education). Each lesson generally includes the following elements: narrative summary, suggested activities, and suggested resources. Each unit also includes a progress test (with answer key). A module pre/posttest (with answer key) concludes the document. (Workshop proceedings relating to the development of these modules are available in the ERIC system as CE 019 896-899; also available is a module on utilizing FHA-HERO as an instructional strategy to expand and strengthen the home economics instructional programs [CE 019 900].)
