Cybrary Man: How I
I developed a good relationship with the local grocery store
manager in the area where I taught. He used to provide me with class
sets of weekly advertising specials. He also enjoyed giving my
students a tour of his store and he had the employees in the store
tell the students exactly what they were responsible for.
I taught my students about coupons, comparison shopping, unit
pricing, sales tax, how to read food labels, freshness codes,
advertising and placement of items on the shelves.
We also read articles about items that were rated by Consumer
Reports magazine and had them write their own product reviews.
