Personal and Family Finances: A Resource Guide for Teaching.
Matejic, Denise M.; Gaston, Neil A.
This resource guide for teaching personal and family finances was developed to serve a wide spectrum of professional educators, including teachers, administrators, and project directors. Although it was designed for those involved in community outreach programs (see CE 023 729), the content can be useful for adults and students in a variety of settings. This guide deals with strategies for presenting the following six subject areas of personal and family finances: budgeting, credit, insurance, housing, saving and investing, and estate planning/retirement. The unit of study for each subject area includes an overview, general objectives for the learner, content outline, specific teaching suggestions, values clarification activities, questions for discussion, vocabulary study, evaluation indicators, and a selected bibliography of teaching/learning resources. A complementary volume having to do with the design, implementation, management, and evaluation of community-based educational projects is also available (CE 023 726). (BM)
