Instructional Units to Accompany Economics for Nebraska's Junior High School Students.
Johnson, Paul G., Ed.
These nine instructional units form the second part of a two-part plan for providing direction for junior high studies in economics. The units cover the first nine of 14 concepts outlined in part one, the concept paper (see SO 011 415). Suitable for both junior high and high school level, each unit comprises a one-week course. All nine units can serve as the basis for a semester course in economics. Titles for the units include Economic Wants, Productive Resources, Scarcity and Choice, Economic Incentives, Interdependence, and the Price Mechanism. Within each unit are commonly designated sections including an abstract, major teaching strategies, generalizations that students should learn, and teaching objectives. Approximately five lessons are outlined in each unit; each lesson provides a list of materials needed, teaching strategies, and a section for teacher's notes. Learning activities include using community resources, tracing wants and needs throughout the life cycle, role playing members of the Chamber of Commerce, and listing expenditures for a "$2500 Give Away." A bibliography, handouts, transparencies, tests, and answer keys are provided in appendices. (KC)
