Resource Manual for Teacher Training Programs in Economics.
Saunders, Phillip, Ed.; And Others
This resource manual uses a general systems model for educational planning, instruction, and evaluation to describe a college introductory economics course. The goal of the manual is to help beginning or experienced instructors teach more effectively. The model components include needs, goals, objectives, constraints, planning and strategy, implementation, data collection, and evaluation, and are used to describe each part of the course as well as the entire course. Topics discussed are economics course content, learning theory, instructional objectives, lectures and classroom discussion techniques, essay questions and tests, multiple choice objective tests, organizing an economics course, development and evaluation of teaching skills through the use of videotapes, course and instructor evaluation, learning aids, microteaching, and interpersonal communication skills emphasizing empathy and genuineness. Three appendices include a program description of the 1973 Teacher Training Conference for Instructors of College Economics, a list of schools with training programs in teaching economics and selected sample syllabi, and description and ordering information for videotapes.
