ECO 5500: Teaching Economics Using Children's Literature

Course Description:

This course is designed to help teachers with little economic education and with minimal internet literacy. The course is designed to help teachers learn how to teach economics using children's literature. Children's literature is an excellent tool to teach economics to children. When economics is taught to children using literature they begin to realize that economics is real and a part of the world around them. Because children love stories, literature is a very motivational teaching technique that can be used to effectively teach economics. Since economics is being taught in the context of literature, the interdisciplinary approach will help fit teaching economic concepts into an already overcrowded curriculum.
