Syllabus and Economics: Reasoning with Generation "Why"
Burdina, Mariya; Sasser, Sue Lynn
Journal of Economic Education, v49 n1 p38-45 2018
In this article, the authors propose to enhance the syllabus for economic courses with economic explanations. They argue that providing economic rationale for course policies can increase student interest in the course and at the same time positively affect student attitude toward course policies. The authors describe practical strategies for incorporating economic explanations into the syllabus and present insights from piloting the technique.
