Economics Assignments for Secondary School Students.
Dawson, George G.
The suggested assignments in this manual were written to provide the high school economics teacher with ideas for projects and exercises that students might do as homework or as long-term activities. They range from very simple assignments that should take only a few minutes of the student's time, to projects that might require several days or an extended period of time. In terms of difficulty, they range from very easy descriptive types of assignments to those that call for careful thought, research, and analysis. Teachers can select those activities that are suitable for a particular class, group, or individual. Although originally written for use with a particular textbook, these assignments should be applicable to any standard high school economics text or to some of the simpler college texts frequently used in secondary schools. An index is included to help teachers find assignments relevant to their own textbooks. In addition, each major concept, topic, problem, or principle is underlined throughout the document. Most of the suggested assignments have been used by high school economics teachers. An index of economic concepts and topics concludes the document. (GEA)
