Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Instructional Materials Lab.; Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Vocational Education.
These materials for the curriculum area of economics and managing resources comprise one of six such packages that are part of the Ohio Vocational Consumer/Homemaking Curriculum Guide. The curriculum area or perennial problem taken up in this document is divided into three practical problems about what to do regarding: (1) decision making; (2) resource/product management; and (3) citizen participation. These are further categorized into seven concerns: external and personal factors affecting consumer decisions, financial planning, purchasing, conserving, consumer protection, and consumer responsibilities. Each concern is divided into a number of concepts or modules. This package consists of 25 modules. The format for each module is as follows: code, perennial problem, practical problem, concern/concept, homemaking skills (listing of various skills needed by the homemaker as related to the developed concepts), and a chart relating process skills (steps of practical reasoning), concepts (further breakdown of the topic), and strategies (information and activities that facilitate the teaching/learning of the concepts). In some cases, specific resources are attached; otherwise, teachers may choose their own resources based upon availability and appropriateness to individual classrooms. (YLB)
