KNOWLEDGE OF ECONOMICS OF ELEVENTH GRADE U.S. HISTORY STUDENTS.
JACKSON, HARRY D.; KASTNER, HAROLD H.
IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND FACTORS LEADING TO COMPETENT ECONOMIC KNOWLEDGE OF 11TH-GRADE STUDENTS, A STUDY WAS INITIATED WHICH TRIED (1) TO SHOW GAIN OR LOSS OF ECONOMIC UNDERSTANDING IN THE 11TH-GRADE U.S. HISTORY COURSE, (2) TO ESTABLISH A RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN NUMBER OF RELATED STUDENT COURSES TAKEN AND ECONOMIC LITERACY ACHIEVED, AND (3) TO ESTABLISH A RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE ACADEMIC BACKGROUND OF THE TEACHERS AND THE COMPETENCY OF THEIR STUDENTS. AS A REFERENCE, STUDENTS WERE ADMINISTERED PRE- AND POST-TESTS OF ECONOMIC UNDERSTANDING (TEU) AND TEACHERS WERE ASKED TO COMPLETE A BACKGROUND QUESTIONNAIRE. WHILE THERE WAS A GAIN OF ECONOMIC KNOWLEDGE DURING THE 11TH-GRADE U.S. HISTORY COURSE, NO SIGNIFICANT RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN PREVIOUS RELATED COURSES OR PREVIOUS TEACHING EXPERIENCE OR PREPARATION COULD BE ESTABLISHED.
