The Relative Effectiveness of Economics Instruction for Teachers and College Students.
Walstad, William B.
Journal of Economic Education, v15 n4 p297-308 Fall 1984
Practicing teachers who took a Masters of Instruction program showed a mastery of economics comparable to regular college students taking intermediate theory courses and significantly more positive attitudes toward economics. However, the study raised serious questions concerning the effectiveness of college economics teaching and the economic understanding of precollege economics teachers. (Author/RM)
