Taxpayer Education for Middle and Junior High School Students. Design Report.
Agency for Instructional Technology, Bloomington, IN.
The purpose of the project described in this report is to produce video programs and accompanying print materials to teach the economics of taxation in U.S. history classrooms in grades 7 through 9. Three 15-minute student video programs and a fourth, longer one to help teachers use the student videos effectively are planned. These video programs will be placed in a school resource package along with associated print materials intended to help teachers integrate the student video programs into lessons in U.S. history. In-service training activities are an integral part of the project. Teacher training workshops will be offered at the state and local level, and a manual will be developed for use in planning and conducting these workshops. The materials will be available for classroom use in the second semester of the 1990-91 school year. The project is a joint effort of the Agency for Instructional Technology, the Joint Council on Economic Education, and the Internal Revenue Service. (JB)
