A Problem of Graphics: Economics and the Blind.
O'Donnell, Margaret G.
Social Studies, v82 n3 p91-93 May-Jun 1991
Recounts a college economics professor's attempts to explain macroeconomic concepts to a blind student. Considers how explanations of economics principles often rely on graphic presentations. Describes experimental tactile adaptation, using graphs made out of sandpaper, yarn, spaghetti, and other materials. Recommends developing prefabricated tactile economics diagrams but also suggests finding ways to teach economics without graphs. (CH)
