The booklet is part of a grade 10-12 social studies series produced for bilingual education. The series consists of six major thematic modules, with four to five booklets in each. The interdisciplinary modules are based on major ideas and designed to help students understand some major human problems and make sound, responsive decisions to improve their own and others' lives in the global society. Students are taught to: (1) comprehend and analyze the issue and synthesize their understanding; (2) effectively interpret the topic and clarify their values; and (3) participate in activities stressing development of critical reading, expository writing skills, and use and interpretation of illustrations, graphs, and charts. Each booklet is published with Spanish and English on facing pages. A "student edition" (not included here) and the "teacher's edition" are identical except for occasional marginal notes in the latter. This booklet focuses on economic systems and factors influencing growth and change. The first case study introduces data about programs for economic development and provides a simulation in which the data are used to analyze causes of growth. The second looks at the influence of culture on three major economic systems (traditional capitalistic, socialistic). The third examines causes and effects of change in an economic system. A glossary and a resource list are included. (MSE)
