[MATCHE: Management Approach to Teaching Consumer and Homemaking Education.] Consumer Approach Strand: Human Development. Module I-E-5: Consumer Aspects of Parenthood.
This competency-based preservice home economics teacher education module on consumer aspects of parenthood is the fifth in a set of five modules on consumer education related to human development. (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, three units of instruction are presented: (1) personal and financial pressures surrounding living units with children (lessons included are on background and research and creating a learning activity); (2) securing child care services (includes lessons on gathering information on securing child care, and writing a concise article); and (3) consumer education for children (includes lessons on collecting data on advertising aimed at children and creating an advertisement). Each lesson generally includes a narrative summary and suggested activities. A list of suggested module resources (readings) and a list of module post-evaluation discussion questions conclude 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 strenghten the home economics instructional programs [CE 019 900].)
