Economic education for citizenship by Steve L Miller( Book )

5 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economics is an important part of the U.S. social studies core curriculum, and this book considers the role of economics education in the development of citizenship skills. Chapter 1 describes: (1) citizenship and economic literacy; (2) the amount of economics education to offer; (3) economics in relation to economic education; and (4) decision-making in terms of economics and values. Chapter 2 considers the status of economics education in schools and argues for a combination of economics education infusion into existing grades k-12 courses, along with a required high school course. Chapter 3 discusses economics instruction in terms of a model that centers on economic reasoning for effective citizenship and suggests teaching economics based on learning theory research and on established teaching practices. Chapter 4 examines: (1) evaluative materials selection techniques for teachers; (2) the economics content of social studies textbooks; (3) reviews of economics textbooks; and (4) other classroom materials, such as videocassettes and teacher's guides. Figures are included, and a bibliography of teaching materials and Educational Resources Information Center (eric) resources contains 288 references. (Jhp)

The goal of this book is to help teachers deal more effectively with national security topics in their economics courses.

Section 1 contains eight lessons dealing with fundamental economic concepts. Section 2 has five lessons on topics illustrating microeconomic concepts related to markets, supply, and demand. Section 3 contains six lessons on microeconomic concepts related to market structure and market failure. Section 4 presents six lessons on various macroeconomic concepts. Section 5 includes five lessons dealing with international economic concepts. Section 6 contains four lessons relevant to economic decision making and measurement concepts. Each lesson includes (1) a description of the main points, (2) economic concepts to be taught, (3) instructional objectives, (4) suggested teaching procedures, (5) ways to integrate lessons with the textbook, (6) exercises and application activities on reproducible handouts for student, and (7) suggested readings.

Social studies in Indonesian secondary schools and the preparation of social studies teachers : perceptions of teacher educators of ten state teacher education institutes (IKIPs) by Johannes Esomar( )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Limited evidence suggests that the preparation of social studies teachers prescribed by the 1979 and 1986 curricula have not been effectively implemented. It was believed that the root of the problem might be with social studies teacher educators who might disagree with some of the underlying assumptions of the two curricula. Of interest were assumptions derived from the views of social studies adopted in the secondary curricula characterized as citizenship transmission (CT), social science (SS), and reflective inquiry (RI) orientations
The effect of the "Trade offs" series on student understanding of and attitude toward economics by Steve L Miller( )

3 editions published between 1980 and 1983 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The experimental teacher posttest scores were found to be substantially higher, but not statistically different from, those of the control group, after controlling for other factors. The impact of teacher posttest scores on student posttest economic understanding was found to be not significant
The effect of problem-oriented and rule-oriented computer-based instructional strategies on concept acquisition in microeconomics by Vincent Elliott Lasnik( )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This computer-based study investigated the complex relationship between instructional strategy, gender, achievement in microeconomics (including higher and lower-order question subscales), attitude toward economics, economic attitude sophistication, level of computer anxiety, and attitude toward learning (deep versus surface approaches toward learning). Twelfth-grade students in regular social science courses (n = 155) at four senior high schools were randomly assigned to two alternative instructional treatments. Each treatment, emphasizing either a problem-oriented strategy or a rule-oriented strategy, consisted of a week-long computer-based unit teaching fundamental economic concepts of supply, demand, and equilibrium. The treatments were delivered in self-contained computer laboratories within each school. The courseware treatment sequence included lesson modules employing immediate knowledge of results and corrective feedback, drill, tutorial, cognitive strategy and role-playing simulation components

Social studies and global education : viewing economic, social and political aspects of the civil war through multiple perspectives by Jared G Mills( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introduction: The purpose of this thesis is to examine the United States Civil War using multiple perspectives. As the global marketplace influences our society, students, teachers and scholars alike must begin to understand how to view each event through the lenses of all parties involved. The United States Civil War encompassed various social, economic and political perspectives as viewed by the United States and the global marketplace. Those studying the Civil War must be challenged to think critically and evaluate these perspectives. As a United States history teacher covering the time period beginning with early English settlement of North America through the Reconstruction period, I find that many students have a one-sided view of critical historical events. The importance of expanding their perception of these events cannot be underestimated. Taking the topic of the United States Civil War, with which many students are already familiar, and challenging them to evaluate the multiple perspectives of varying groups involved in the war will create an understanding for students of today's global world. Also, the application of knowledge of multiple perspectives to current events will better prepare students for their future participation in the global world. For example, if students are able to discern the influence of European countries on the outcome of the United States Civil War they may also be able to see the influence of other countries outside of the United States on conflicts in the Middle East. Also, students will evaluate how world politics effect local elections and emphasize with the varying opinions that surface during elections. Ultimately, students will be encouraged to ask questions and challenge information presented to them via the classroom teacher, television, radio, internet and classmates through critical thinking and evaluation of multiple perspectives. In order to accomplish the above goal the reader of this thesis will be provided with a comprehensive literature review and a well-outlined synopsis of the impact of the United States Civil War. I have also included a detailed perspective of the Union (the Northern States) and the Confederacy (the Southern States) during the Civil War Time period (1861-1 865), as well as a detailed summary of the influence of foreign nations on the United States Civil War

The impact of international experience on teaching with a global perspective : reflections of returned Peace Corps Volunteer Teachers by Barbara Hubbard Myers( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study utilized qualitative inquiry. Data collection methods included an initial correspondence to collect logistical data, followed by recorded interviews, follow-up telephone conversations, and notes to guide the analysis. Evidence from the study revealed that motives for joining Peace Corps were guided by different influences?most strongly, that of personal achievement and self-gain. Overall, the major findings indicated how the respondents perceived a change in their instructional practice; however, the strongest impact of change occurred within themselves rather than in their curriculum and instruction. Further investigation of global education and teaching with a global perspective, as well as recommendations for international experiences for perspective teachers is also discussed. Implications from the study include considerations for the integration of Peace Corps and Global Education with that of school curricula, to be utilized in teacher preparation
