This teacher resource manual uses K-2 student 'wants' as a starting place for teaching economic education. The manual contains step-by-step lesson plans and reductions of the student pages for quick reference. Each lesson is divided into four parts: focus, prepare, teach, and connect. Part 1 shows how goods and services satisfy all people's economic wants. Part 2 introduces students to the world of work, showing them different resources that are used in producing goods and services. In part 3, students become aware of a world of scarcity and the need to make choices. Part 4 builds on young children's fascination with the adult world of work and teaches them about specialization and interdependence. Part 5 shows how consumers and producers are brought together through exchange, and students learn about the role of money in exchange. The final two lessons in part 5 review the concepts from all earlier lessons. Performance outcomes, a planning chart, and a 25-term glossary also are included in the manual. The companion student activities manual contains 26 supporting activities. The pages include family letters, scripts, activity cards, patterns, and a variety of other classroom exercises in blackline master form. (LB)

"This book seeks to join the ongoing, interdisciplinary approach to children's literature by means of sustained readings of individual texts by means of important works in the history of philosophy. Its inclusion of authors from both various departments--philosophy, literature, religion, and education--and various countries is an attempt to show how traditional boundaries between disciplines might become more permeable and how philosophy offers important insights to this interdisciplinary, critical conversation"--provided by publisher.
