Teachers Guide to Man and the Economic Society: A Social Studies Curriculum Supplement.
McCabe, Milo F.
Endeavoring to reach a goal of economic literacy, this K-12 economic resource guide provides the teacher with a context, concepts, and content about the economics of American society and the study of economics in general. Its purpose is to shorten the amount of work and time that a teacher needs to spend on reading and locating material. Based upon Lawrence Senesh's conceptual framework, this resource guide presents eight economic units: Man and His Environment; Socialization of Man; Economic Society: A Social Institution; Economic System or Market; Consumption Function and the Product Market; The Production Function and the Factor Market; Modifications of the Market Mechanism; and Measuring and Determining the Performance of the Economic System: Growth and Stability. Each unit includes a description of the context, a list of economic concepts related to the topic, and detailed outlines of the content areas. Short histories of money and banking in appendices conclude the guide. (This guide is part of a series, SO 008 676 through SO 008 680.) (Author/ND)
