Debates for Government Intervention in IB Economics

Debates for Government Intervention in IB Economics

This lesson is for IB Economics for the government intervention section in microeconomics. Make groups of four or six. Each group will choose a different topic from the list. Then within each group the students will break off into pairs, if it is a group of four, and the pair will prepare for the debate as either pro or con on the issue. Give the students about three class days, or about a week outside of class to prepare. Then have them debate in front of the class. You can change the topics to reflect any current trends in your city or country. This debate activity helps the students see the relevance of the topic and it gives the students several examples they can use for examples on their class tests and for the IB exam.
