Suggested reading

The new issue of the Journal of Economic Education is now available. I was particularly happy to see an article by Donna Gilleskie and Mike Salemi that eases my mind a bit about how I teach Principles: in "The Cost of Economic Literacy: How Well Does a Literacy-Targeted Principles of Economics Course Prepare Students for Intermediate Theory Courses?", they find that "students who complete a literacy-targeted principles course perform no worse in intermediate theory courses than students who complete a traditional principles course."
