Consumer Education (A High School One Semester Course).
Hawaii State Dept. of Education, Honolulu. Office of Instructional Services.
Designed for a one-semester high school social studies elective course, this curriculum guide uses a multidisciplinary approach to teach consumer education. Eight units of study cover the marketplace, consumer protection, decision making, money management, credit and taxes, basic necessities, housing, and future security. Within each unit, an overview is followed by three lessons on specific aspects of consumerism. Sample lessons are: fraud, advertising, and scarcity (the marketplace); occupations and budgeting (money management); and life insurance, investments, and health insurance (future security). Each lesson includes an overview, generalizations, concepts, objectives, vocabulary, an index to student references, a series of activities, readings or worksheets, appendices, and a bibliography.
