A Manual for Implementing a Cooperative Consumer/Law-Related Education Program.
Smorodin, Calla; And Others
A five-chapter manual provides a model for involving the state attorney general and the business and professional communities in law-related consumer education at the elementary school level. Chapter I, introduction, describes the history and special features of the program as it was developed for the St. Louis (Missouri) public schools. Chapter II outlines skill strands, administrative rationale, and main components of the instructional program. Chapter III provides a step-by-step strategy for setting up a joint venture: establishing a new system, defining the functions of each agency, defining job responsibilities, and establishing procedures for decision making. Chapter IV considers the size and scope of program goals, educational objectives, and short and long term goals. Chapter V discusses project implementation, while chapter VI considers institutionalization of the program. Sources of possible funding for cooperative educational projects are discussed in chapter VII. The final chapter provides helpful forms, suggestions for advisory board membership, sample letters, record-keeping forms, and workshop programs. An appendix contains a sample lesson plan. (LP)
