Economic Education Experiences of Enterprising Teachers. Volume 9.
Dawson, George G., Ed.
Teachers developing creative and imaginative methods of providing students with a foundation for economic education are invited to submit their examples to the Kazanjian Awards Program. The stated objective of economic instruction is to help students develop their ability to think rationally, objectively, and with a modest degree of sophistication about economic issues. Within volume 9 readers are exposed to remarkably creative, effective examples of teaching at every grade level and in conjunction with virtually every subject. Projects reflect originality, describe the class situation, set forth scope and sequence, list goals, spell out motivational devices and give a step by step account of teaching techniques. The culmination of the unit or project is explained and evaluation techniques are discussed. Each of the five chapters describes programs for a particular educational level, from K to university, and each is followed by shorter descriptions of innovative programs worthy of inclusion. This volume provides a cumulative index to volumes 1 through 8, arranged by grade level. A related document is ED 053 003. (Author/JMB)
