Economic Education Experiences of Enterprising Teachers, Volume 11.
Dawson, George G., Ed.
Examples of effective economics teaching from kindergarten through college, contained in this 11th volume of the Joint Council for Economic Education series, are selected from the 1972-73 entries in the Kazanjian Foundation Awards Program for the teaching of economics. Arranged by grade level, 22 descriptions of original teacher-developed projects provide class type, scope and duration of activities, goals of the activities, motivational devices and initiatory activities, teaching techniques, photographs or samples of student work, culmination activities, and evaluation techniques--all of which are elements judged in the awards program. At the end of each grade level chapter is an appendix entitled "Good Ideas in Brief." The teaching experiences described include cross age learning, consumer economics, student apprentices in the business community, a recycling business, working with slow learners, and a training system for graduate student instructors. A cumulative index of reports in the previous 10 volumes is available from the editor. (JH)
