Learning Economics through Children's Stories. A Bibliographic Reference. Third Revised Edition.
Nappi, Andrew T.; And Others
Children's stories provide a valuable resource for teaching economic ideas and provide opportunities for young people to relate their experiences to the economic world. The Center for Economic Education at St. Cloud State University has compiled a bibliography of children's stories to assist teachers and librarians in selecting stories for the enrichment of student learning in economic education. This latest revision is organized into eight parts beginning with a listing of economic concepts to be introduced at the elementary K-6 level. Parts II through IV contain descriptive summaries of 100 children's stories in economics and approximately 70 summaries of articles and research on the teaching of economics in elementary grades. Recommendations for classroom use are found in the summaries. Concluding sections identify journals, newsletters, professional organizations, and other bibliographies related to elementary economic education. (MR)
