About this product
- DescriptionIn the Great Recession of 2007-2010, Americans watched their retirement savings erode and the value of their homes decline while the unemployment rate increased and GDP sank. New demands emerged for unprecedented government intervention into the ecomy. While these changes have a dramatic impact on society at large, they also have serious implications for the content and teaching of ecomics. Teaching Ecomics in a Time of Unprecedented Change is a one-stop collection that helps pre- and in-service social studies teachers to foster an understanding of classic content as well as recent ecomic developments. Part I offers clear and teachable overviews of the nature of today's complex ecomic crisis and the corollary changes in teaching ecomics that flow from revising and updating long-held ecomic assumptions. Part II provides both detailed best practices for teaching ecomics in the social studies classroom and frameworks for teaching ecomics within different contexts including personal finance, entrepreneurship, and history. Part III concludes with effective strategies for teaching at the elementary and secondary school levels based on current research on ecomic education. From advice on what every ecomics teacher should kw, to tips for best education practices, to investigations into what research tells us about teaching ecomics, this collection provides a wealth of contextual background and teaching ideas for today's ecomics and social studies educators.
