Teaching Economics in American History. A Teacher's Manual for Secondary Schools.
Dawson, George G.; Prehn, Edward C.
Designed for secondary teachers to use in conjunction with a textbook, the teaching guide assists the teacher in incorporating economic facts, concepts, and principles in a United States history course. The primary purpose is to identify historical events which can be enriched by consideration of relevant economic topics in an interdisciplinary approach. Content is geared to inquiry-discussion techniques. Twenty-one American history topics are presented in chronological order from the 17th century to the present with a brief account of events of the period which had important economic aspects. Key economic terms are identified in bold faced type. Discussion questions which vary in difficulty and a number of suggested activities (such as interviews, role-playing, films, filmstrips, talks, field trips, community resources, and visits to local museums and places of historic interest) follow the introduction of each topic.
