Introducing Economics: A Critical Guide for Teaching
This guide for high school teachers, written by Mark H. Maier and GDAE Senior Research Fellow Julie A. Nelson, is designed to help instructors counter the narrowness of many high school economics curriculum materials. Following the outline of a typical high school textbook, it gives a broader view of arguments on topics including consumption, labor, corporations, the environment, and globalization. The volume includes a description of the competing schools of economics and an annotated guide to the major organizations involved in high school economics teaching.
