Applied Economics. Curriculum Review Project.
Butler, Judy D.
This paper provides a review of "Applied Economics," a curriculum package developed by Junior Achievement, Inc. (Colorado Springs, Colorado). The materials are used in high schools across the nation and provide students an opportunity to study economics, learn about the U.S. free enterprise system, and explore their roles as citizens, producers, and consumers. The unit contains interviews of personnel at the Tennessee Junior Achievement Office, a national program advisor, a local teacher who used the materials, and an administrator of the school where the teacher worked. In addition, the material reports on training for consultants, observing classes using the program, and perusing the materials distributed to participants. The overall evaluation of the program was positive and provided practical application and experience in textbook economics. Contains 16 references. (EH)
