Helburn, Suzanne Wiggins
This is a tip sheet for teachers who ask ERIC/ChESS for help in setting up a high school course in economics. It provides these kinds of help: 1) a brief overview of what economics is; 2) suggestions about how economics fits into the high school curriculum; 3) references to a few books which are particularly good introductions to economics; 4) some suggestions about organizing a textbook-oriented course; 5) a list of agencies to contact for help or for useful student materials; and, 6) a short bibliography of reference and library materials to order.
