Modular Curriculum: Social Studies. Modern Economic Functions and Teacher's Guide.
This course, designed for extramural college students to cover during 8-10 weeks, provides background experience for practical analysis of economic problems. The student tackles representative problems through background readings supplied by a text and outside articles dealing with specific problems, making written responses to basic and elaborative questions for each problem, and concluding the course with an individual investigation. The following problems are covered: 1) Basic economic concepts; 2) National income and fiscal policy; 3) Money banking and monetary policy; and 4) Foreign trade. The teacher's guide to the module, in a separate booklet, suggests things to look for in the written assignments but leaves open the possibility of varied responses, especially in the final investigation.
