Teachers Guide to Economics in Grade 4.
Lovell, Hugh, Ed.
This guide is organized around fundamental economic concepts which are applied to particular themes in United States history. The concepts deal with such things as availability and use of resources, division of labor, trade, and are illustrated through the following situations: 1) Indians of the Pacific Northwest; 2) explorers, fur traders, and Louis and Clark; 3) the pioneers; 4) Oregon statehood; 5) our transportation and communication system; 6) our industries, businesses and resources. As in the other guides within the series, learning activities, resources, and evaluation methods are provided for each concept. In addition to guidelines for the ideas teachers should include or emphasize, the appendices also include: examples of some of the things we buy and sell; notes on the early history of taxation in Oregon; where Oregon state and local governments get and spend their money; employment in the Pacific Northwest; and, information on the Developmental Economic Education Program. See SO 000 132 for full information and related documents. (JLB)
