Economics framework for the 2006 National Assessment of Educational Progress by Stephen Buckles( )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document provides a guide for the development of the 2006 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) Economics Assessment. The framework is designed to assess the outcomes of student education in and understanding of economics in grade 12 as part of NAEP. Economic literacy is defined as the ability to identify, analyze, and evaluate the consequences of individual decisions and public policy and includes an understanding of: (1) Fundamental constraints imposed by limited resources, the resulting choices people have to make, and the trade-offs they face; (2) How economies and markets work and how people function within them; and (3) Benefits and costs of economic interaction and interdependence among people and nations. The content of the framework is grouped into three areas: Market Economy (relevance of limited resources; how individuals and institutions make and evaluate decisions; role of incentives; how buyers and sellers interact to create markets; how markets allocate resource; economic role of government in a market economy); National Economy (concepts, terminology, and data used to identify and describe inflation, unemployment, output, and growth; factors that cause changes in those conditions; role of money and interest rates in an economy; mechanics and the appropriate uses of Federal Reserve monetary policies and federal government fiscal policies); and International Economy (reasons for individuals and businesses to specialize and trade; rationale for specialization and trade across international borders; comparison of the benefits and costs of that specialization and resulting trade for consumers, producers, and governments). Within each content area, questions are designed to assess economics in three cognitive categories: (1)Knowing; (2) Applying; and (3) Reasoning. The following are appended: (1) References; (2) NAEP Economics Framework Project; (3) Steering Committee Charge to the Planning Committee; (4) Sample items (Market Economy; National Economy; International Economy); (5) Framework Development Process; and (6) Acknowledgments. (Contains 2 tables.) [Assessment and Item Specifications: NAEP 2006 Economics is a companion document to this framework.]

Economics in action : 14 greatest hits for teaching high school economics by Jane S Lopus( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economics can be the most relevant and stimulating class students take in high school. One way to make this happen is to actively involve students in lessons that demonstrate important economic concepts and economic reasoning. This book contains a compilation of 14 popular lessons (all-time favorites from earlier publications by the National Council on Economic Education) that use a variety of activities to teach economics. The lessons are not intended to stand alone as the course materials. They are recommended as supplements to a good high school economics textbook, as well as to lectures that emphasize content. The lessons contain one or more activities requiring students to do more than passively absorb facts and information. The activity-based approach challenges students to take responsibility for their own learning. Following the "Introduction" and other informational material, 12 lessons are: (1) "Why People Trade"; (2) "Economic Decision Making"; (3) "Using Economic Reasoning to Solve Mysteries"; (4) "Property Rights in a Market Economy"; (5) "Role of Government in a Market Economy"; (6) "Economic Way of Thinking: Three Activities to Demonstrate Marginal Analysis"; (7) "Market in Wheat"; (8) "Productivity"; (9) "Invention Convention"; (10) "Circular Flow of Economic Activity"; (11) "Money and Inflation"; (12) "Fiscal Policy: a Two-Act Play"; (13) "Comparative Advantage and Trade in a Global Economy"; and (14) "Exchange Rates: Money around the World".

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This lesson guide is designed to help U.S. history teachers and students in grades 8-11 examine historic events through basic economic reasoning. It lends itself to instruction grounded in inquiry learning, direct instruction, and cooperative learning. It calls for students to be engaged in case studies, simulation exercises, and group work, as well as lectures, class discussion, reading, and writing. This volume (2 of 2) includes nine units, each of which presents a unit overview, two to seven lessons (31 altogether), and sample test items. Each lesson includes an introduction that summarizes the historical facts and economic principles to be used in the lesson, a concept list, instructional objectives, an estimate of the time required for instruction, and a list of instructional materials, including visuals for transparencies, and student activities. Each lesson contains detailed teaching procedures, which typically begin with a statement of purpose and include discussion questions, activities, anticipated responses, and answers to questions posed in the activities. Each lesson culminates with a closure activity that reviews learning, provides a lesson summary, or invites additional applications. The program is designed for supplemental use with a secondary U.S. history textbook and is intended to integrate the study of history and economics. The program is not intended for use as a self-contained history course; it focuses only on the economic dimensions of U.S. history. (Author/BB)
