Selective Bibliography in Economics Resources.
Hedstrom, Judith E.
The selective, annotated bibliography provides junior high and secondary school teachers with an overview of current materials and resources in economics. Although the primary focus of the bibliography is on the teaching and learning of economics as a social science discipline, some materials also reflect trends in personal and consumer economics. There are five major sections. Basal Curriculum Materials reviews eight textbook programs reflecting a variety of teaching approaches. The 29 print materials, games, and audiovisual materials described in the Supplementary Student Materials section may be used to supplement a basic economics course or to introduce economic concepts into other social studies courses. The Teacher Resource Materials section lists five publications which provide suggestions and ideas for teachers. Six entries in the ERIC Documents section suggest teaching techniques. Three entries in the Organizations and Associations section describe sources of curriculum materials and other relevant publications. All entries in the first three sections provide information about quality, usefulness, instructional approach, grade level, publication date (1975 or newer), and availability. (Author/AV)
