Weidenaar, Dennis J.
One component of the "Master Curriculum Guide in Economics for the Nation's Schools," this guide demonstrates, through sample lessons, how the conceptual structure of economics, presented in part 1 of the series, can be taught in the K-12 curricula. The guide is designed to accelerate economics instruction at all grade levels, including the college-level social studies methods course. Lessons are organized by four major categories: concept learning, inquiry, skills learning, and value analysis. Information presented for each lesson includes grade level, teaching method, economic concepts, objectives, materials needed, and teaching procedures. Also provided in the guide is a classification of lessons by economic concepts and discussions of concept learning and deductive and inductive teaching approaches. Student handouts are included. (RM)
