Roosters to Robots.
McCorkle, Sarapage, Ed.; Suiter, Mary, Ed.
This publication contains six lessons for elementary, secondary, and high school classrooms developed by writers from Belarus, Bulgaria, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Ukraine, 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 International Education Exchange Program (IEEP). Through intensive writing exercises, expert guidance, feedback from peers, and follow-up work by electronic mail, teachers improve writing skills in developing instructional materials. The publication consists of six lessons: (1) "A Rooster and a Bean Seed" (Julia Lelyuk); (2) "Folding Our Way to Productivity" (Daira Batanova; Alice Bottomley; John Brock; Natalia Shappo); (3) "Gross Domestic Pizza" (Irene Zaleskiene; Anatoly Venger; Rich MacDonald; Debbie Davis); (4) "What, How and For Whom to Produce?" (Krystyna Brzaklik); (5) "Clothes from Grain: A Miracle or a Problem?" (Joyce Gleason); and (6) "Centuries of Economic Growth: From Feathers to Robotics" (Angela Bullock; Sara Paul; Anzhela Yevgushchenko; Vesselka Votkova). Each lesson offers a lesson description; recommends age level; lists concepts; addresses content standards and benchmarks; cites educational objectives; states time required and materials needed; suggests a step-by-step procedure for classroom implementation; and addresses closure, assessment, and extension. Lessons also contain visuals. (BT)
