An Economic Course for Elementary School Teachers. Second Revised Edition.
Lovell, Hugh; Harter, Charlotte
This handbook is intended to help economic educators develop teacher training courses for demonstrating to classroom teachers how to teach economics to children, grades 1-9. Teachers enrolled in the course carry out their own pupil activities which teach economic ideas. These activities include problem solving, case studies, skits, making posters, viewing of films, and role playing. The teachers write a brief description of the concept the activity teaches and the teaching techniques used and share their experience with the activities in group discussion. The handbook material (1) provides a description of the topics to be covered in each session; (2) lists related films, filmstrips, handout materials, and other needed resources; and (3) gives a general description of how to organize each session. The handbook was originally published as a resource for Oregon teachers. This revised edition, however, can easily be used by teachers and educators in other states. (Author/RM)
