Things You "Auto" Know When Buying a Car. Teacher's Guide [and] Student Material.
This unit provides high school students with criteria for deciding to buy a new or used car and selecting a reputable dealer. It is divided into three sections. In the first section students analyze uses and identify car sizes, options, and appearances that are important. The second section describes advantages and disadvantages of new and used cars and the third section describes how to tell a reputable dealer from a nonreputable one. Students play games in which they answer hypothetical questions about their automobile needs, list advantages of purchasing a new or used car, analyze feelings about car ownership, find articles in consumer magazines about purchasing cars, and survey reputations of car dealers at the Better Business Bureau. Directions for making activities and games, objectives, a materials list, and reproducible pre- and posttests are included in the teacher's guide. Approximate class time for the unit is four to six hours. (KC)
