[MATCHE: Management Approach to Teaching Consumer and Homemaking Education.] Consumer Approach Strand: Housing. Module I-B-5: Procedures for Selecting Furnishings.
This competency-based preservice home economics teacher education module on procedures for selecting furnishings is the fifth in a set of six modules on consumer education related to housing. (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 objectives and overview, three units of instruction are presented: (1) comparison of home furnishings (includes three lessons on the unique furnishing requirements of individuals and families, selection of case goods, upholstered goods and accessories, and selection of background furnishings); (2) rental versus purchase of home furnishings (includes two lessons on purchasing furniture for mobility and flexibility and maintaining a sense of individuality while moving or renting home furnishings); and (3) alternatives to purchasing new furnishings (includes one lesson on resources for used home furnishings items). Each lesson generally includes the following elements: narrative summary, suggested activities, and suggested resources (readings). 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].)
