Re: [Channel-talkeconomics] Workshop 7 Monetary and Fiscal Policy
This workshop reminded me of some topics that I did not touch on in my first
year of teaching economics: Aggregate Supply & Aggregate Demand.
Do you experienced teacher spend time with this? Are these terms that are
focused on more with honors or AP students?
I particularly like the activity on how money works. I would like to adopt
that in my class. Seeing how money is "created" should provide students with a
clearer understanding on how our money supply grows and contracts.
Do you use any activities like this one?
The "Fed Challenge" reminds me of my Model UN club. My students, like the ones
in the video, enjoy doing work related to a specific discipline. Where I have
more knowledge about UN operations than I do about economic policy, I do not
feel that I would be the best person to start up a Fed Challenge program.
Have any of you been involved with one?
Thanks for the feedback!
