Applying Angelo's Teacher's Dozen to Undergraduate Introductory Economics Classes: A Call for Greater Interactive Learning
In a recent article entitled, "Teaching Economics in the 21st Century" William Becker again states that economics has placed too little value on the importance of teaching. One potential approach to addressing Becker's issue of "what we teach, how we teach, and the assessment of the educational outcomes at the baccalaureate level" is to examine the applicability of Thomas Angelo's "Teacher's Dozen" to introductory economics. In order to make recommendations as to how Angelo's fourteen principles can be used to improve teaching and learning in the principles of economics course, this paper looks at six main themes around which the principles appear to cluster.
