This lesson is a collaboration between the library media specialist and a FACS teacher.
This collaborative lesson plan addresses standards in both the library media curriculum and the CTE/FACS Adult Roles and Responsibilities curriculum. The FACS standard is "Identify consumer rights and responsibilities and identify effective practices for purchasing consumer goods, services, housing, and insurance." The library media standards are the first 5 steps of the Big 6 Information Literacy process.
The student will identify resources for doing research before purchasing a product. They will compare and contrast brands, features, and prices before making a final decision to purchase.
Students complete the worksheet and then do an oral discussion with either the FACS teacher or LMT about any challenges they encountered in the exercise.
