Teachers Guide to Economics in Grade 1.
Lovell, Hugh, Ed.; Ouchi, Albert, Ed.
This guide is one of the series intended to teach a progression of economic concepts as an enrichment to an existing social studies program. The guide is structured around an elaboration of five basic concepts. "Big Ideas": 1) all families need goods and services; 2) families need money for goods and services; 3) someone must produce the goods and services families need; 4) specialization and use of tools help us produce more and better goods and services; and, 5) some goods and services come from other countries. For each concept there are supporting concepts, a variety of related activities, multi-media resources, and techniques for evaluating student understanding of these concepts. An appendix lists major ideas and sub-ideas of modern economics which define the boundaries of the economics discipline and act as guidelines to the things teachers should cover or emphasize. See SO 000 132 for full information and related documents. (JLB)
