Audiovisual Materials for Teaching Economics.
Kronish, Sidney J.
The Audiovisual Materials Evaluation Committee prepared this report to guide elementary and secondary teachers in their selection of supplementary economic education audiovisual materials. It updates a 1969 publication by adding 107 items to the original guide. Materials included in this report: (1) contain elements of economic analysis--facts, concepts, generalizations, and theories--rather than pure description; (2) use accurate data and internally consistent logic; and (3) are organized for effective teaching-learning experience from the point of view of process and content. A statistical analysis of the new materials indicates to audiovisual materials producers areas in need of new materials. For instance, instructional aids for the elementary grades are very scarce as are materials on the problems of developing nations. Annotated materials are arranged by the following subcategories: (1) General Nature of Economics; (2) Markets, Prices, and Resource Allocation; (3) Income Determination, Stabilization, and Growth; (4) Role of Government and Economic Institutions; (5) International Economics; (6) Comparative Economic Systems and Economic History; and (7) Special Series. Each entry includes source, date, type of instructional aid, applicable classroom subjects, grade level, analytical concepts used, and a short annotation. A list of the material by grade level and by title and a list of producers and distributors complete the guide. (JH)
