Crash Course Economics Worksheets Episodes 26-30

TEACH WITH INSIGHT AND HUMOR USING YOUTUBE AND THESE CRASH COURSE ECONOMICS WORKSHEETS! Few classroom strategies are as successful as this simple approach: make learning fun! Unfortunately for economics teachers, many students think of this subject as one of the most dry and boring courses ever. The good news is, it doesn't have to be this way! One easy way to increase student enjoyment while still keeping them deeply engaged in highly relevant subject matter is to show the class episodes of the excellent free online series Crash Course Economics. The script of each episode is packed with humorous observations -- ones that help to make strong points about the economic concepts under study. Students like watching the series, which means they pay attention to it and learn! Just as importantly, this series has a way of presenting economic models in a clear, concise way using examples and anecdotes that high school students can *really* relate to! Produced by PBS Digital Studios, each episode of Crash Course contains about 10 minutes of content plus a brief time for the credits. Episodes are available for free on YouTube at the following playlist: If you are new to Crash Course, I encourage you to watch a few videos as soon as you can. I expect you'll be just as enthusiastic about the classroom possibilities as I am! ABOUT THESE CRASH COURSE ECONOMICS WORKSHEETS Each worksheet focuses on a single episode of Crash Course Economics and typically contains between 15 and 20 problems for students to complete. Worksheets are formatted to fit on one page for easy copying and a detailed answer key is provided for each episode. In addition to these regular worksheet items, open-ended extra credit or discussion items are also included for each and every episode. These can be used as debate starters, essay prompts, or . . . the sky's the limit, but one thing is sure -- they target the economic concepts covered in the episode and try to get students to go "one step further" and apply those concepts to their own views of life and society. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- EPISODES INCLUDED IN THIS CRASH COURSE WORKSHEET SET: • 26 Game Theory and Oligopoly • 27 Behavioral Economics • 28 Labor Markets and Minimum Wage • 29 The Economics of Health Care • 30 The Economics of Death --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It was run by the Personal Finance Education Group charity (pfeg) with EdComs, National Children’s Bureau (NCB) and the PSHE Association.

Blog part 12 starting on 8th August

It's great to see the Olympics bring so many people together, uniting and inspiring so many in Britain. To be a great sports hero requires many &'divine&'; qualities such as patience, determination, endurance, courage and enthusiasm - and brings so much joy. On TV tonight, discussion on the 'exclusive&' nature of sports - equestrian / sailing. But everyone is getting so much joy in watching. The discussion itself should lead to improvements which bring more people into the different sports. I&';d love to see more games (such as Indian Kabadi) from around the world into the Olympics, too.
