Economic Education Experiences of Enterprising Teachers, Volume 8.
Dawson, George G., Ed.
Examples of effective economics teaching from kindergarten through college, contained in this eighth volume of the Joint Council for Economic Education series, are selected from the 1969-70 entries in the Kazanjian Foundation Awards Program for the teaching of economics. Arranged by grade level, these 18 descriptions of original, teacher-developed programs 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." Teaching experiences described include using simulations, combining creative writing with economics, bringing economic principles home to the student, teaching slow learners, and approaching economics as a cultural phenomena. A final chapter, "The Status of Research in Economic Education," an overview of economic education, gives brief descriptions of recent research projects at all educational levels. A cumulative index for the previous seven volumes in this series completes the document. (JH)
