Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Elementary and Secondary Education.
One of a series of implementation documents prepared in conjunction with the revised minimum standards adopted in 1983 by the Ohio State Board of Education, this document suggests ways to develop economic education programs in Ohio high schools and identifies issues certain to be encountered in developing such a program. Each of the five sections in this publication deals with a different area: (1) the Conceptual Framework section offers an overview of economic education to assist in planning the program; (2) the Program Design and Curriculum Placement section describes options for placement of economics in high school curriculum, including discrete and interdisciplinary placement; (3) the Implementation section reviews several methods for making decisions about program design and curriculum placement; (4) the Course of Study Development section provides a basic framework for economic education, outlining the components needed to develop an economics course of study; and (5) the Teaching Strategies section surveys ways to increase students' learning in the economics class. Seven references are listed, and instruments for developing economic education programs are included in the appendixes. (DCS)
