Teachers will learn how to make learning about supply, demand, and equilibrium fun (online or in-person) with this new curriculum unit created by Marginal Revolution University (MRU), featuring interactive games, videos, news articles, and software for drawing and shifting curves.  This hands-on, experiential webinar will provide a sampling of the curriculum unit’s bells and whistles, including demonstrating how to utilize videos as direct instruction resources and integrate current events to increase student engagement and comprehension.  Teachers will play new interactive games to teach trends and shifts in supply and demand curves.

Each lesson is complete with a bell ringer, direct instruction, student activity sheets, practice problems, exit ticket, enrichment activities, current events, and assessment questions designed to increase student retention and transfer of knowledge.  All resources will be freely accessible to teachers in easy-to-use and classroom-ready Google docs, including answer keys, and other optional instructional technology (e.g., Nearpod) to save teachers prep time while enhancing student motivation.  Aligned with national and state learning standards, this unit of 5 lessons covers law of demand, law of supply, demand curve shifts, supply curve shifts, and equilibrium price and quantity.  As a bonus, participants will receive fun, economic-themed swag.



Additional Information:

Zoom link will be emailed to registered participants shortly before the webinar begins.
