Audiovisual Materials for Teaching Economics. Third Edition.
Harter, Charlotte T.; And Others
The third edition of this catalog, which expands and revises earlier editions, annotates audiovisual items for economic education in kindergarten through college. The purpose of the catalog is to help teachers select sound economic materials for classroom use. A selective listing, the catalog cites over 700 items out of more than 1200 items reviewed. The four criteria used to select audiovisual materials were economic content and analysis, objectivity, interest and effectiveness as a teaching tool, and availability. The materials are organized by the following topical areas: scarcity and choice, the modified market economy of the United States and how it works, economic stability and growth, how economic principles and reasoning are applied to economic problems, and the world economy. Most of the items listed are films and filmstrips. Each annotation contains a description of the audiovisual indicating grade level and questions designed to help teacher and student understand and retain the information in the material being presented. A complete list of all producers and distributors is included. Title and grade level indexes are included. (Author/RM)
