This workshop will discuss the power of specialization and interdependence using three classroom lessons. The first lesson centers on community workers and the specialized jobs they perform. The second involves active participation in a simulation of two countries. The third will integrate children’s literature which will give your classroom an instant economic boost all while infusing more reading comprehension and language art skills into your instruction. Come experience the benefits of specialization and voluntary exchange. Copies of lessons will be shared. Door prizes will be awarded.
