It’s that time again! Time to focus on economic policy to help determine how economics and elections intersect. This workshop will help you teach students how to think critically about elections and public policy. Lessons will focus on voters and elections; government institutions, marginal error, and public choice.  Students will become informed citizens as they consider the trade-offs involved in setting public policy. They will learn to articulate their own views by evaluating primary and secondary sources, engaging in group activities and discussions, and writing brief essays.
