What happens when you combine simulations, role-playing activities and mystery-based lesson plans with economics? The answer is simple: your students actually learn the concepts. The lessons covered in this workshop are an excellent resource for any teacher of economics.
Participants will leave with:

- Activities to help teach six major economic themes, including economic decision making and reasoning; trade and comparative advantage; money, exchange rates and fiscal policy; productivity and entrepreneurship; government; and the market economy.
- Specific lessons on GDP, CPI, unemployment and other economic indicators for assessing the economy.
