ECON 12: Teacher's Materials. Units I and II.
Wiggins, Suzanne
The objectives of this experimental 12th grade economics course begin with an understanding that "economic analysis applies a set of basic concepts and their interrelationships to problems (involving) economic scarcity." Fifteen basic concepts are to be learned (e. g., want, markets, money, etc.) as well as the definition and vocabulary of economics. Students will also know how to do and evaluate economic research. The two units cover fifty class sessions. Lessons in Unit I, "What is Economics," deal with scarcity, production, exchange and money, economic exchange systems, circular flow, values, and the definition of economics. The definition and function of the price system, models in social science, the market under certain conditions, industrial market structure, and the auto, aluminum, and telephone industries comprise the lessons of Unit II, "U. S. Price System." Inductive methods are utilized. Instructor's materials for most of the lessons include a content outline, lists of behavioral objectives, summaries, and background materials. Answers to student worksheets are provided for both units, and three multiple-choice tests are provided for Unit I. 16mm, slide, and overhead projectors are required.
