Teaching Economics to Black Students.
Lloyd, R. Grann
Against the background of separate and inferior education for black Americans, the author discusses questions related to the effective teaching of economics to black students today. To the question of differentiated economics education by race, the author qualifies his negative answer by pointing to certain barriers to teaching economics to blacks, such as, basic skill level, exposure to economic institutions, and motivation, all probably due to white racism, however. Suggested solutions are remediation and effective teaching methods, such as the following: multi-media representations of economic realities, programmed instruction, inquiry methods, problem solving field work, and relevant subject matter selection. The latter approach requires that economics be taught from a cultural context by focusing on the black experience. (Author/DJB)
