This curriculum guide for consumer and family economics is one of a number of guides developed for use in vocational home economics education in Texas. Introductory materials address use of the guide and list the essential elements upon which the content is based. The guide is divided into seven units: family economics, consumers in the economy, role of government, consumer purchasing and consumer assertiveness, obtaining income, protecting family economic security, and consumer careers. Each unit lists competencies and subcompetencies at the beginning of the section. Concepts related to the competencies are listed in the right-hand columns. Learning and evaluation experiences are found in the left-hand columns. Teaching aids keyed to learning and evaluation experiences--including transparency masters, activities, and exercises--are located at the end of the guide. Designations have been used in the content for (1) developing skills within the Texas Common Elements for all vocational education; (2) applying basic/academic skills; and (3) developing critical thinking skills. Key points for content discussion and review are also indicated. A 10-item reference list is appended. (YLB)
