The Rent Event. Leader's Guide [and] Member's Manual.
Pennsylvania State Univ., University Park. Cooperative Extension Service.
The leader's guide and member's manual are presented for a 4-H project designed primarily for older teens, ages 16-19, the group most likely to need information on how to rent their first "home away from home." The member's manual is divided into 10 sections, with each section covering a particular aspect of the rental process. It guides the learner through the decision-making process of finding, selecting, furnishing, and maintaining an apartment; helps the learner understand the basic terms of a lease and the things to watch out for in a lease; provides guidelines for selecting an apartment and explains the costs of renting; suggests inexpensive ways to furnish an apartment; gives basic information on caring for and maintaining an apartment; and lists pointers on selecting a roommate. Sections 2-10 contain objectives; information; glossary; and activities. The leader's guide provides an introduction to the project and to working with youth; an explanation of the activities; some possible modifications; guidelines for carrying out the project; answers to questions; and additional teaching materials needed. Two games that group members can make themselves are included. A video is available separately. (YLB)
