This module on knowing what one is borrowing before buying is one of ten in the Money Smart curriculum, and includes an instructor guide and a take-home guide. It was developed to help adults outside the financial mainstream enhance their money skills and create positive banking relationships. It is designed to familiarize participants with the characteristics of consumer installment loans. Topics are the different types of consumer installment loans and how to choose the right consumer installment loan for one's needs. Each module consists of an instructor guide, sample promotional flyer, and take-home guide for class participants. The instructor guide provides this information: preparing to present the course; materials and equipment list; and guide to icons. Each page is divided into two columns. The left presents icons to alert the instructor to discussion questions, exercises, transitions, and summaries; the right provides step-by-step directions that enable the instructor to ask questions, provide explanations, show slides, handout materials, and introduce exercises. Handouts and overheads are appended. The flyer follows. The take-home guide is comprised of information sheets; course evaluation; and "What Do You Know," a pre-and post-form that shows what participants know about banking basics. A Spanish version is included. (YLB)
