Url: http://www.econedlink.org/lessons/index.php?lid=737&type=educator
Creator: Buckles, Stephen
Publisher: National Council on Economic Education
Description: Teaching economics at the high school or college level can be tremendously interesting, and at the same time, it can be difficult to find high-quality classroom resources for this particular discipline. The EconEdLink website (created by the National Council on Economic Education) is a great place to find just such resources, including this recent lesson plan and activity. Written by Stephen Buckles of Vanderbilt University, this lesson deals with the world of the gross domestic product (GDP). The goals of this particular activity are to provide teachers and students with access to easily understood monthly announcements of rates of change in real GDP, along with questions and activities that will help reinforce understanding of relevant concepts. The site includes access to teacher materials, key economic concepts, and basic explanations of what is included within the GDP and how it is tabulated.
