Consumer's Choice. A Manual of Supplemental Consumer Education Teaching Strategies. Developed for Grades K-4.
Allegheny Intermediate Unit, Pittsburgh, PA.
Designed for grades K-4, this manual contains suggested teaching strategies for infusing consumer education into the academic areas of art, language arts, mathematics, science/health, and social studies. Each of the twenty to thirty learning activities provided for each of the academic areas is based on competencies related to one of four concepts: basic economics of the market place; legal rights, redress, and consumer law; major purchases of products and services; and special problems such as advertising and product safety. Included with the learning activities are resources needed, followup activities, and student performance indicators. All together, twenty-four consumer competencies, each with several sub-competencies, are covered (e.g., "Demonstrate the use of the monetary system," and "Analyze advertising and its influence on the consumer"). A resource list is appended. (JH)
