Competency Based Consumer Education.
Douma, Elaine L.
This document is intended as a tool to help teachers develop a competency-based consumer education curriculum. It first briefly discusses the need for a competency-based approach over a K-14 continuum. The major portion of the document then consists of lists of competencies on a K-14 continuum that are nonsubject specific. They are categorized into the four major goal areas that comprise consumer education: (1) decision making; (2) resource management; (3) consumer roles, rights, responsibility; and (4) knowledge of the marketplace. Under each goal are five to seven subordinate objectives for which are listed grade level-appropriate indicators or statements that describe specific behaviors of individuals who have achieved given levels of competencies. (The grade levels are K-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12, and 13-14.) A one-page summary outline discusses use of the K-14 competency-based consumer education matrix. (YLB)
