Honors Projects


This project focuses on the Social Studies Middle Childhood Education OAE Economics Workshop that was carried out on November 14th, 2015 at Bowling Green State University. The workshop was created to help Bowling Green State University pre-service teachers prepare for the Economics portion of the Middle Grades Social Studies Ohio Assessment for Educators (OAE). Throughout the workshop participants were taught lessons on microeconomics and macroeconomics. At the beginning participants were pretested and at the end participants were post tested on Middle Grades Social Studies OAE practice test questions to assess how much they learned. The project includes the Research Questions, Literature Review, Proposed Activity, Methodology, and Expected Results/Potential Conclusion, as well as the Annotated Bibliography from the planning phase of the project. After the Proposal the Method, Results, and Discussion are included to show how the workshop was conducted, as well as the outcome of the workshop.
