Report of the Economics Advisory Panel.
California Statewide Social Sciences Study Committee, Sacramento.
This revised report has been developed by the Economics Advisory Panel for the California Statewide Social Sciences Study Committee. The main purpose is to present a set of guidelines for the Statewide Social Sciences Study Committee for determining the manner in which the subject matter of Economics should be integrated into the Social Sciences Curriculum (K-12) in California. The presentation is developed in terms of a program of social science education. The report: 1) discusses objectives of the social sciences; 2) examines reasons why economics have not been an integral part of past and present social science curricula; 3) gives a rationale for including economics in the modern social sciences curricula; 4) provides an overview of economic education in contemporary social science curricula; 5) suggests a blueprint for integrating economics into future social science curricula; and, 6) devotes half of the report to giving directions for implementing a program in economic education in California. Focus is upon placement of subject matter content and economic education for teachers. An annotated bibliography of selected resource materials is provided. (Author)
