The teacher's guide is the third in a series of three developed for primary or early intermediate levels. It consists of learning experiences designed to build student familiarity with basic economic terms and concepts: consumer, producer, needs, wants, goods, services, short-range and long-range planning, fixed and variable expenses, and budgets. The material also acquaints students with the details of many services offered by banks, and introduces them to the uses of various money substitutes and to the existence of a variety of occupations and career fields. Subject areas for which the materials in the guide have potential are social studies and math. Each set of learning experiences contains a student objective, set overview, resource list, teacher-preparation tasks, learning activities, and suggestions for evaluation-summary activities. Activity-coordinated resource materials include transparency masters and evaluation sheets. (Author/NJ)
