Money-Go-Round: A Self Teaching Program.
Tomich, John G.; Gilray, James G.
The self-instructional program is designed to give students in grades 4-6 new insights into the concept of money. By using the programmed learning material the students become acquainted with the evolution of money through questioning techniques. Students explore the concepts of barter, token money, coins, paper money, and checks. The paper contains a program description, student instructions for answering the questions and checking for correct responses, the Money-Go-Round Self Teaching Program, a test, and an answer key. The study of money is logically and progressively sequenced and is completely self-contained. Learning is broken down into small, graduated steps that facilitate successful responses, and reinforcement is provided throughout by frames that review previously taught concepts. Supplemental relevant information, such as the life span of a piece of paper money and the weight problems engendered by large numbers of coins, is often included in the answers to frames. A final test and complete answer key conclude the document. (Author/DB)
