For High School Teachers
Introducing Economics: A Critical Guide for Teaching: This guide for high school teachers, written by Mark H. Maier and GDAE Senior Researcher Julie A. Nelson, is designed to help instructors counter the narrowness (and, often, right-wing bias) 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. In addition, the volume includes a history of the development of high school economics, a description of the competing schools of economics, critical commentary on each of the Voluntary National Content Standards for economics, and an annotated guide to the major organizations involved in high school economics teaching. Order from M.E. Sharpe. A companion website is also available at http://introducingeconomics.org/.
