[MATCHE: Management Approach to Teaching Consumer and Homemaking Education.] Economically Depressed Areas Strand: Housing. Module III-B-1: Low-Income Housing.
This competency-based preservice home economics teacher education module on low income housing is the first in a set of three modules on housing in economically depressed areas. (This set is part of a larger set 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) life-styles and low-income housing (with a lesson on low-income shelter and its possible impact on life style), (2) strengths and limitations of diverse low-income housing (with a lesson on low-income housing), (3) social conditions (with a lesson on social influences on shelter), and (4) landlord tenant responsibilities (with a lesson on landlord-tenant relations). Each unit includes the unit objective and overview. Lessons contain narrative summaries, suggested activities and resources, and a progress test. Appended are comparative elements of federally assisted housing programs; shelter journals and periodicals; characteristics of high and low cost public housing families; and some physical and visual attributes of the housing bundle. 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].)
