Old MacDonald to Uncle Sam.
McCorkle, Sarapage, Ed.; Suiter, Mary, Ed.
This publication contains six lessons for elementary, middle, and high school classrooms developed by writers from Belarus, Croatia, Hungary, Kyrgyzstan, Romania, Russia, and the United States. The authors of these lessons were participants in the Training of Writers program developed and conducted by the National Council on Economic Education, as part of the Cooperative Education Exchange Program. Since 1996 the program has helped teachers learn how to write instructional materials, through intensive writing exercises, expert guidance, feedback from peers, and follow-up by electronic mail. The publication consists of the following lessons: (1) "Old MacDonald Had a Farm" (Jadranka Bernik; Lessie Freeman; Stephenie Stevens; Jennifer Taunton); (2) "Goods and Services: Some Are Private, Some Are Not" (Aleksandr Balkunov; Agota Matyas; Lynne Stover; Cathy Trana); (3) "Scribe for Productivity" (Jeanine Kaczorowski Moore); (4) "Uncle Sam's Checkbook" (Vernon Dobis; Georgeta Georgescu; Martha Hopkins; Brenda Smith); (5) "Scarcity and Choice" (Liudmila Guinkel); and (6) "Public Goods and Services" (Svetlana Yurkovskaya). Each lesson provides a brief description; cites age level; addresses content standards and benchmarks; lists objectives; states time required and materials needed; suggests a step-by-step procedure for implementation; and discusses assessment and extension. Also offers visuals. (BT)
