The purpose of this book is to provide insights into preservice teachers? beliefs and attitudes related to the teaching of economics and to help explain and improve their intentions to teach economics. The analyses provide pedagogical implications for social studies methods courses and should be especially useful to professionals in teacher training, economics, and citizenship education, or to other educators and citizens who have genuine concerns over how to prepare PK-12 students for effective decision-making as responsible consumers, workers, and voters at individual and social levels.
