Global Visions. Teaching Suggestions and Activity Masters for Unit 3: Economic Freedom: Who's Got It, Who Doesn't.
Procter and Gamble Educational Services, Cincinnati, OH.
This is a classroom-ready program that examines the worldwide push for economic freedom as a way of helping students understand its relationship to economic growth. This program is designed to supplement social studies courses in economics, government, U.S. and world history, world cultures, and geography. The unit contains a newsletter for students in grades 9-12, four reproducible activity masters contained in a four-page teacher's guide, and a full-color map, "Economic Freedom: Who's Got It, Who Doesn't," presented as a full-sized wall poster. The learning objectives are: (1) to define 'economic freedom' (or 'economic liberty') and to explain how it might affect economic growth; (2) to explain why increased economic freedom might be unsettling to some Chinese workers; (3) to cite at least one provision in the U.S. Constitution that supports the concept of economic freedom; (4) to explain five components of economic freedom; (6) to describe how today's global economy differs from those of earlier centuries; (7) to suggest how studies of economic behavior help us understand consumers; (8) to explain why it is important for global companies to pay attention to local values; and (9) to describe at least two factors that would make a nation's economic climate attractive to investors.
