Your Guide for Teaching Money Management. [Revised].
Baran, Nancy H., Ed.
This resource guide for teachers offers material for teaching money management in classes ranging from elementary through adult level. The guide covers seven key concepts in separate units: values and goals, income and employment, money management, financial products and services, credit, insurance, and savings and investments. Each unit includes generalizations, classroom objectives, learning activities, key terms, and an annotated list of suggested resources. In addition, the guide explains how to use an interdisciplinary approach, suggests community resources, and outlines how to adapt materials to groups of different ages and abilities. Student questionnaires, case studies, guidance for planning field trips, and a list of student research projects bulletin board ideas are provided. A reference list gives names and addresses for periodicals and newsletters, computer software, and associations and educational agencies. (KC)
