Basic & Survival Consumer Economics for Adult Refugees.
Carlston, Peter G.
Prepared to help teachers address the basic and survival level consumer needs of adult Vietnamese and Laotian refugees, this instructional guide consists of five units of instructional materials. Topics of the individual units are (1) how the monetary system works (cash, checks, postal money orders, banking); (2) the family consumer (personal and family hygiene, laundry, home care, and landlord and tenant); (3) family safety and health (home safety, home medicine, emergencies, doctors and dentists, prescriptions, reading directions); (4) shopping for food and good nutrition (foods and adapted basic food groups, smart food shopping); (5) smart consumerism (types of stores, getting the best buy). Provided in each lesson are a teacher's sheet containing suggested activities, instructional materials, and goals of the lesson; a student sheet (written in Vietnamese and Lao) complete with a vocabulary list and basic information about the topic covered; and a student instructional sheet (written in English) giving the student practice in developing manipulative skills.
