Developing Economic Understanding through General Business and Advanced Basic Business: Course Outlines and Instructional Guides [And] Instructional Activities.
Hopkins, Charles R., Ed.; Price, Ray G., Ed.
These publications are intended for secondary-level business educators who want to include more economics in their general and basic business courses. They can serve as curriculum development documents for those charged with redesigning course offerings. Part 1 of the first publication briefly discusses economic ideas to be developed in general business. Part 2 contains a general course outline of a full-year advanced business course and four sample instructional guides that outline behavioral objectives and suggested class and evaluative activities. The Appendices, which comprise about half of the document, contain ten tests and an economic attitude inventory. The second publication contains 75 class activities on economics which can be integrated into general and advanced business courses. Activities include classroom discussion, role playing, writing reports, guest speakers, and skits. (Author/RM)
