[MATCHE: Management Approach to Teaching Consumer and Homemaking Education.] Consumer Approach Strand: Management. Module I-F-3: Environmental Issues and the Consumer.
This competency-based preservice home economics teacher education module on environmental issues and the consumer is the third in a set of seven modules on consumer education related to management. (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, four units of instruction are presented: (1) current environmental issues related to family consumption patterns (includes one lesson on conservation and consumption patterns); (2) environmental action groups (includes lessons on evaluating environmental action groups and consumer acceptance of environmental action groups); (3) controlling pollution (includes lessons on the need to control pollution, pollution control, and pollution control practices); and (4) conserving natural resources (includes lessons on energy conservation, water conservation, and limited natural resources). Each lesson includes a narrative summary, suggested activities, and a list of suggested resources (readings). Some units also include a progress test. 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].)
