In understanding how individuals (as consumers, workers and entrepreneurs), other producers, and governments interact in the economy, students can be more thoughtful about their role in the overall scheme. Most prices in market economies are established by interaction between buyers and sellers. Understanding how prices are arrived at, and the problems inherent in government setting prices, will help students to make better choices as consumers and voters. It also helps students understand that as producers (workers or entrepreneurs,) the payment for their knowledge and skills (human capital) is also based on supply and demand. This can help them make better choices about how they choose to increase their human capital.
This session will satisfy the requirements for Module 3 & 4 of the Middle School Civics and Economics Institute which assists CE teachers with all the economic content in Virginia’s Standards of Learning and provides creative lessons and resources.
