Economics in Action: A One Semester Course.
West Chester School District, PA.
Ten economics units are outlined for junior and senior high school use. Taken together the units comprise a one-semester (18 week) course. General objectives include understanding the differences between a free-enterprise economy, a mixed economy, and a planned economy; explaining how the government of a country controls the use of paper money; describing the differences between monetary and fiscal policy; and recognizing economic problems that contribute to inflation, recession, and depression. The ten units cover content areas such as banking and money, taxes, credit and budgets, advertising, housing and major purchases, individual and government roles in protecting the future, aids to consumers, and job-seeking. For each unit the guide lists specific objectives and an outline of content. (AV)
