Economics and National Security. Supplementary Lessons for High School Courses.
Miller, Steven L.; And Others
The goal of this book is to help teachers deal more effectively with national security topics in their economics courses. The lessons are designed to introduce national security ideas and concepts into the classroom by filling gaps in textbook coverage and enriching current textbook treatment of national security topics. The lessons are grouped into six sections corresponding to major divisions of subject matter in a high school economics course. Section 1 contains eight lessons dealing with fundamental economic concepts. Section 2 has five lessons on topics illustrating microeconomic concepts related to markets, supply, and demand. Section 3 contains six lessons on microeconomic concepts related to market structure and market failure. Section 4 presents six lessons on various macroeconomic concepts. Section 5 includes five lessons dealing with international economic concepts. Section 6 contains four lessons relevant to economic decision making and measurement concepts. Each lesson includes (1) a description of the main points, (2) economic concepts to be taught, (3) instructional objectives, (4) suggested teaching procedures, (5) ways to integrate lessons with the textbook, (6) exercises and application activities on reproducible handouts for student, and (7) suggested readings.
