Teachers Guide to Economic Concepts: Grade 4-6.
McCabe, Milo F.
This grades 4-6 teachers guide is one of five resource guides developed to aid teachers in helping students in South Dakota to achieve a high degree of economic literacy. It is felt that schools must prepare students at all grade levels to develop an understanding of the economy in which they live. This guide was specifically prepared to assist elementary school teachers, preservice students, and others interested in economic education with the identification and location of important economic concepts that are contained in the vast array of teaching materials and texts available in the social studies, and gives suggestions as to how these concepts might be taught at different grade levels. Fifty-seven economic concepts such as agriculture, budgeting, saving, and trade are included in this guide. Under each concept the following information is recorded: the grade level, the source in which located, the author and/or publisher, a brief summation of it, and the page on which it is located in the source. Resource users are encouraged to add, delete, or adapt these concepts to their own needs and preferences. (Author/ND)
