Consumer Economics & Personal Finance

This traditional course from a mainline secular publisher thoroughly covers the basics of both personal finances (handling money wisely) and consumer economics (the generalities of handling money). There's good coverage of a broad range of topics - career planning, financial goals and budgets, paying taxes, banks and credit unions, checking and savings accounts, debit cards, and ATMs. This course provides lots of practical applications including discussing the pros and cons of credit cards and loans, your personal buying behavior, smart shopping and consumer rights and responsibilities, renting or buying a house, housing needs, and investments. Although discussions on various topics are solid, some examples and information is dated. For instance, there is no mention of the Affordable Health Care act during the discussion of health insurance. The hardcover text provides readable content that includes cartoon illustrations, case studies, internet research projects, Get Smart sections (financial safety and protection), Making It Real and Your Life sections (personal applications), a Chapter Wrap-up and Words to Know section. The Teacher's Resource Manual provides lesson plans and resources for each chapter that include objectives, vocabulary, background information, lists of further resources, review and critical thinking questions, and activities. Reproducible resources include a Study Guide with short essay and vocabulary review plus a multiple choice Chapter Test. An answer key is provided. Text - 366 pgs, pb; teacher's 116 pgs, pb. ~ Janice
