>>I enjoyed video Workshop #1, and am hoping that there are others now
>>enrolled in the summer '06 workshop who would like to swap observations
>>and suggestions.
>>I currently teach two sections of economics and thought the lessons
>>shown were creative and would help students understand the concepts
>>being explored.
>>
>>My personal favorite was the last lesson on cartels. It reminded me of
>>my class. I could definitely relate to the instructor, especially when
>>he was asked why they weren't playing another round because the student
>>worksheet had space for one more.
>>
>>I also enjoyed the lesson on barriers to trade, but that was definitely
>>a high ability, high motivational group of students; not my class
>>makeup.
>>
>>If anyone's out there please reply.
