Workshop Planning Manual for Teacher Inservice Education in Personal and Family Financial Planning.
Lloyd, Janice Holm; Gunther, Marilyn
The inservice training of secondary teachers in the consumer economics areas of personal and family financial planning has been identified as a prime need. Responsibility for providing inservice programs in both content and methods of teaching consumer education rests, in part, on colleges of education. This manual was developed to be a guide for institutions of higher education in planning and conducting inservice education that will best meet the needs of teachers. Specifically, the manual is intended to: (1) assist individual colleges and universities in developing coordinated and effective inservice programs in personal and family financial planning; and (2) encourage individual colleges and universities to organize and carry out periodic consumer education inservice programs for secondary teachers, particularly related to personal and family finance. It will also assist colleges and universities in identifying the needs, goals, objectives, planning strategies, implementation, and evaluation components of professional development programs. (JD)
