Economics Lessons that Engage: Free Rider Challenge Scenarios

Economics Lessons that Engage: Free Rider Challenge Scenarios

Tired of teaching from an economics text that's more dull and dry than the Sahara Desert? So was I, which is why I started developing my own challenge materials that would engage kids and encourage them to do their own economic thinking! These scenarios center around the issue of "free riders," or individuals that consume a good without contributing to the resources needed to pay for it. The economics thinking is brought down to earth for students through the use of fun scenarios written at their level. In fact, the scenarios are ones likely to resonate with high school students since it was my own class of 12th graders that came up with the ideas for many of situations posed. CRITICAL THINKING MATTERS! This lesson involves a lot of discussion about issues that kids find interesting and want to sink their teeth into. Along the way, they will learn about public goods, private goods, and the ways in which various types of goods are funded or paid for. Then it's up to them to decide if the solutions suggested are good ones for dealing with free riders on the system -- or if the system itself is better off simply accepting the existence of free riders. 10 DETAILED SCENARIOS IN ALL, WITH TWO DIFFICULTY LEVELS FOR EACH MAKE YOUR ECON CLASS SIZZLE! Students love these scenarios and suddenly start thinking of economics as something that is interesting and fun! Which of course, it is! With these challenge scenarios, you'll see how right materials can transform your economics classroom into an environment with high student engagement. Thanks as ever, Elise Parker

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.

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!

Hitler: The Rise of Evil Movie Viewing Worksheets -- 70 Fill-In Problems -- Fully Editable

Hitler: The Rise of Evil Movie Viewing Worksheets -- 70 Fill-In Problems -- Fully Editable

These Hitler: The Rise of Evil worksheets are designed to be used by students as they watch the film. Students will pay better attention to the movie and will focus in on important details as they solve the problems included in the activity. USING THESE HITLER THE RISE OF EVIL MOVIE WORKSHEETS The approach here is cloze, also known as fill-ins: Key statements from the film's script are included on a worksheet, with important words or phrases blocked out. Students are to fill in the missing words or phrases as they watch the film. I have used these worksheets with my classes and have found them to be highly successful at helping students follow the movie better and feel accountable for the class time spent on the movie. Students stay on task more when they feel accountable. As every teacher knows, some students treat an instructional movie as though it were free time. These worksheets will help discourage that notion. The worksheet is several pages long and has 70 cloze (fill-in-the-blank) problems to be solved while students watch the 3 hour-long film. The problems to be solved often guide students to historically significant items, helping them to gain a better understanding of the importance and context of terms such as: Communist, Versailles, Fuhrer, Munich, putsch, swastika, Reichstag, chancellor... and many more! Teacher convenience is a hallmark of my products! Accordingly, I have organized student materials and teacher materials in several ways so that you have a variety of options. Student Materials: Two worksheet versions are provided for your convenience: 1) Re-usable. Make one class set and use it with multiple groups over multiple years. Save on paper, ink, and the hassle of making printouts! 2) Consumable. If you prefer to let students write directly on the worksheets, use this version! Teacher Materials: Two answer keys are provided to you: 1) Answers provided in context for use in class discussions of the material. This answer key includes timestamps of when each key statement occurs during the movie. This answer key is probably the more convenient one if you have students use the consumable worksheets. 2) A more traditional linear answer key to make correcting student work simpler. This answer key is probably more convenient if you have students use the re-usable worksheets.

Athens and Sparta Worksheets: Compare and Contrast Activity Set

Athens and Sparta Worksheets: Compare and Contrast Activity Set

Help your students master key information about ancient Greece's two most famous city-states: Athens and Sparta! Most world history textbooks give an overview of the two city-states, but few take the next step of helping students compare and contrast them in detail. The more we can get students to think critically, the more they will learn and remember, and these worksheets are designed with that principle in mind. To that end, this packet includes several resources: • A compare/contrast chart with dozens of descriptors about ancient Greece. For each, students identify if the description matches Athens, Sparta, or both. • A set of 26 follow-up questions about Athens, with many of them designed to reinforce key content vocabulary such as democracy, tyrant, and oligarchy. Others take basic information about Athens and work in additional supporting details to give students a clearer picture of ancient Greece. • A set of 26 follow-up questions about Sparta, with many of them designed to reinforce key vocabulary also. Emphasis is given to the military aspect of life in Sparta, but other topics, including their unusual system of government, are covered as well. • Full answer keys to all activities. All follow-up questions are multiple-choice. Whether you are studying the ancient world in detail or quickly reviewing it as part of a "evolution of modern government" emphasis, these Athens and Sparta activity worksheets will help your students gain more insight into the Golden Age of Greece.

America the Story of US Episode 10 Quiz and Worksheet: World War II

America the Story of US Episode 10 Quiz and Worksheet: World War II

60 Multiple Choice Questions on Episode 10 of America: The Story of US America: The Story of US is a History Channel series that uses engaging imagery, powerful special effects, and a lively script to convey the story of the United States in 12 concise yet comprehensive episodes. This teaching packet covers Episode 10: “World War II," focusing on the role the United States played in the Second World War. Using any of the series’ episodes in class opens up several useful possibilities. They are so well presented that they are easily understood by students. This in turn means that episodes can actually be used as an introduction to a topic or a unit. On the other hand, they also make excellent reinforcers, so some teachers will want to show the episodes after the end of a chapter or unit for use as a review or recap. ABOUT THIS TEACHING PACKET I’ve kept this episode versatility in mind when making these materials. This teaching resource contains both a worksheet and a test on the episode it covers. These two components are based on different approaches to the video: • The student viewing worksheet has 50 multiple choice questions, all presented in video order. These questions are fairly detailed. Certainly, many students will have good enough recall to be able to complete the worksheet after the episode has been shown, but because of the detailed nature of the questions, some teachers may want to use the worksheet as a “during-viewing” activity that will help students track information and stay on task . • The 10-question test, on the other hand, is designed to help students synthesize the episode’s information and see larger patterns that span different sections of it. My intent when writing the test was to focus solely on the “big issues” that arise from the targeted timespan of American history. Students who have paid attention to the video should definitely have mastered these basic, fundamental issues from the targeted time period. All test questions are also multiple choice. • Two answer keys are provided for all questions. One is designed for fast grading. The other one provides the full context of question and answer to help teachers review material out loud or facilitate class discussions of the material. DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION POSSIBILITIES Because the worksheet and test take these different approaches, teachers can also use them to differentiate instruction. keywords: Pearl Harbor, radar, mass production, women working, feminism, D-Day, Normandy, segregation, B-17, Oppenheimer, Manhattan Project, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, superpower

Nuremberg: Tyranny on Trial Video Worksheets and Primary Source Study -- PDF Version

Nuremberg: Tyranny on Trial Video Worksheets and Primary Source Study -- PDF Version

BRING THE AFTERMATH OF WWII TO LIFE USING THESE NUREMBERG WORKSHEETS AND THE COORDINATING HISTORY CHANNEL VIDEO: NUREMBERG, TYRANNY ON TRIAL The Nuremberg Trials were a key moment in world history, demonstrating for the first time that crimes against humanity could and would be prosecuted. Today's World Court is a direct descendant of the Nuremberg Tribunals. With Nuremberg: Tyranny on Trial from the History Channel and these no-prep worksheets, you can help your students master the aftermath of WWII like never before! INFORMATION FOR THE TEACHER Nuremberg: Tyranny on Trial is a short documentary produced by the History Channel. Because it lasts only 46 minutes, it fits perfectly into a typical class period in a middle school or high school. Teachers who have class periods that last about an hour should have time to both show the video and review answers, all during the same class session. Those who can afford to devote two periods to a more in-depth study of the Nuremberg Trials can show the video one day and discuss the answers in more detail the next day. WHERE TO FIND THE VIDEO Nuremberg: Tyranny on Trial is available online at a variety of streaming sites. The best way to find where it may currently be available is to do a simple Google search for the title. It also airs on the History Channel on an infrequent basis and is available for sale on DVD. Teachers who prefer hard media may find the best prices at sites like Amazon and eBay, where used DVDs for educational programs are often put up for sale. ABOUT THESE WORKSHEETS There are 48 multiple choice questions included in this set. These are continuously numbered and are presented in video order so that students can answer questions as they follow along watching the program. However, the questions are split up into 3 separate worksheets, each focusing on a particular phase of the Nuremberg Trials: background information; the Major War Criminals Trial itself; and Verdict, Sentence, and Legacy. This matches the structure of the video, which moves through those three main topics in order. To provide teachers with an easy differentiation option, all 48 questions are also provided in a free-response format, which is considerably more challenging than the multiple choice version. A primary source political cartoon worksheet is provided as a follow up to viewing, encouraging students to think critically about the details included by the cartoonist and the messages those details are sending.

Spanish Interactive Exercises -- Spanish Synonyms Level 1

Spanish is spoken in far more places than just Spain or Mexico, yet most Spanish textbooks hardly ever emphasize the multinational aspect of the language. Enhance your teaching with these fun interactive exercises / computer games which will help students "grasp" the simple concept: Se habla español en muchos paí­ses. Spanish Interactives Mean Automatic Differentiation! The exercises are done on computer and work right inside a web browser! Each exercises consists of a matching drag-and-drop game where students have to pair up Spanish synonyms. Download the preview to see it in action -- the preview has 4 games for you to try out. The full download has 16. With computer-based instruction, all students can be actively engaged at once in the computer lab -- and each one will be working at his or her own pace to achieve mastery. I taught Spanish for 12 years and developed an extensive Spanish-instruction website to help my students. My exercises really led to mastery -- and trust me, the ones in the textbooks I used generally didn't. The solution to passing the AP Exam: Practice, Practice, Practice! Every student I trained for the AP Spanish exam passed it, and exercises like these with fun, intensive practice that leads to mastery, is a big reason for that record of success. These exercises could be used for enrichment/enhancement or you could make them an extra credit activity -- OR, you could incorporate them into your core curriculum in order to give your students a more well-rounded understanding of Spanish as a multinational language.

The African Americans Many Rivers to Cross Episode 4 Worksheet: 1896-1940

The African Americans Many Rivers to Cross Episode 4 Worksheet: 1896-1940

The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross, is an award-winning six-part documentary series by noted historian Henry Louis Gates, Jr. Covering from about the year 1500 through to the new millennium, the series addresses in a detailed yet entertaining way the challenges faced by African Americans throughout these centuries as well as their many triumphs. Each episode lasts approximately one hour, making the series a convenient one to work into a typical high-school class period. About this African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross Worksheet This worksheet provides students with 45 fill-in-the-blank problems for them to solve as they watch Episode 4 of The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross, which covers the period of 1896 to 1940 in African American history. Summary of Episode 4: Making a Way Out of No Way "Making a Way Out of No Way" portrays the Jim Crow era, when African Americans struggled to build their own worlds within the harsh, narrow confines of segregation. At the turn of the 20th century, a steady stream of African Americans left the South, fleeing the threat of racial violence, and searching for better opportunities in the North and the West. Leaders like Ida B. Wells, W.E.B. Du Bois, Booker T. Washington and Marcus Garvey organized, offering vastly different strategies to further black empowerment and equality. Yet successful black institutions and individuals were always at risk. At the same time, the ascendance of black arts and culture showed that a community with a strong identity and sense of pride was taking hold in spite of Jim Crow. “The Harlem Renaissance” would not only redefine how America saw African Americans, but how African Americans saw themselves.

Sicko Worksheets, Movie Guide, and Debate/Essay/Project Topics

GET REAL IN GOVERNMENT AND ECONOMICS CLASSES WITH A CRITICAL LOOK AT OUR HEALTH CARE SYSTEM Sicko, released in 2007 by famed documentary-maker Michael Moore, addresses the crisis in health care in the United States. The film heavily focuses on the problems of Americans who actually have health insurance – but it is insurance that in many ways leaves them in the lurch when they have a major problem. INCLUDED IN THIS SICKO MOVIE GUIDE AND WORKSHEETS PACKET You will get 120 Sicko movie questions, all presented in video order so that students can follow along, answering as they pay attention to the movie – though it is equally possible to use the questions after viewing as a test or quiz follow-up, or even as a way to review content and spur class discussion. All questions are provided as both multiple choice and free response problems. You will also get 7 follow-up topics to get students thinking more deeply about the movie’s issues so they can formulate their own points of view. These topics work equally well for debate and discussion, essays, and projects, giving teachers a lot of flexibility. Full answer keys are provided, along with detailed introductory teaching notes as well as guidance notes on the discussion and essay topics. EASY DIFFERENTIATION WITH BOTH BASIC AND ADVANCED LEVELS PROVIDED! All 120 questions are provided in both multiple choice and free response formats so that teachers can easily differentiate, with both basic and advanced worksheet versions available at their fingertips. TEACHER CONVENIENCE FEATURES Questions are numbered sequentially so that teachers can start and stop the movie whenever it suits them, instead of trying to match their instruction to worksheets that divide the movie up into pre-established segments.

The Help: Worksheets, Tests, and Movie Guide

The Help: Worksheets, Tests, and Movie Guide

All good teachers know that many students respond better when they can fully immerse themselves in a topic -- but they also know that all too often, students regard a movie shown in class as "free time" or even "nap time." To keep students on their toes and hold them accountable when watching The Help, use this comprehensive movie guide. Students are guided through the action on screen by filling out worksheets as they go -- or can be tested afterwards using the same questions. Teachers have their choice of presenting students with multiple choice questions or with more challenging free-answer versions of the questions, and to make life even better, the free-answer questions are presented on both consumable worksheets and ones designed to be re-used over and over. Convenience Features of these The Help Movie Worksheets For ease of use, the movie is divided into four segments -- each one has a separate worksheet. This lets teachers hold kids accountable just for the sections of the movie they were present to see. The movie guide also contains a solid selection of discussion questions that can be used after the whole movie has been viewed. These are appropriate not just for class debates, but also for formal essays and other types of presentations. Historical Elements featured in The Help Movie Guide The Help is work of fiction, but the action is set in the Deep South during the Civil Rights Movement -- even touching upon the assassination of Medgar Evers. The movie makes history come alive immersing students in the world of race relations that prevailed in the South and asking important questions about both history and society. The Help can provide an excellent introduction to a unit on the Civil Rights Era, helping students to feel connected to -- and invested in -- the events of this key period in American history. Where to find the film that goes with these The Help Movie Worksheets The Help is available on DVD and also on various streaming services such as Netflix. This movie guide will transform it from "just a film" into a true learning experience. Thanks for reading this far -- I hope you download the preview and enjoy using the materials!

An added bonus is that using the worksheets will also help students better figure out who is who on-screen, since many of the dialog segments are labeled with the character's name -- no more mixing up Nehru with Jinnah, for example! History Matters The cloze answers are far from random -- each one was specifically selected as an important history element that students should be aware of. Having students listen for and then write down these key terms such as partition and non-violence will help to draw their attention to those concepts, in essence highlighting them for the students. I am always personally amazed by the mastery level I get from the students after using cloze worksheets like this -- when I stop the movie for the day and collect their papers, then read aloud a few of the cloze problems they solved in the last 40 minutes, a significant number of them can rattle the answers off from memory, showing that they really did learn something; the movie didn't just go in one ear and out the other. Differentiation is Key Because I know full well that a one-size-fits-all approach to instruction can miss more than it hits, I have provided both basic and advanced levels of the cloze worksheets. In the case of the basic level, there are even two different worksheets for students to do. That way, if teachers want to make sure answers aren't shared from one class to another or across rows in the same class, the solution is at their fingertips. Teacher Convenience is a MUST! I know you're busy, so these Ghandi cloze worksheets are designed to minimize implementation time. Both advanced and basic worksheets come in two flavors: reusable and consumable. Keywords: Gandhi, India, Indian history, Mahatma, nationalism, south Asia, Jinnah, Nehru, partition, Pakistan, British colonialism, the jewel in the crown, Raj, decolonization, de-colonization, Indian Independence, Amritsar Massacre

The Crash of 1929 Worksheets / The Crash of 1929 Test

EXPLORE THE CRASH OF 1929 LIKE NEVER BEFORE Even seasoned teachers might be surprised at some of the real-life stories brought to life in the video that goes with these worksheets. Did you know that in between shooting movie scenes, Groucho Marx was making frantic phone calls to his stock broker? Tidbits like that make this episode of "American Experience" really engaging for the students as they learn about the heyday of the Roaring Twenties and the causes of the crash that ended a decade of prosperity. These Crash of 1929 worksheet will help students stay on task and track important details as they watch the video, or they can double as a test given afterwards to assess how much of the information the students have mastered. ABOUT THE VIDEO: AMERICAN EXPERIENCE -- THE CRASH OF 1929 These teaching packet is designed to accompany "The Crash of 1929," an episode of the award-winning PBS series American Experience. The episode lasts approximately 53 minutes, making it a near-perfect “fit” for one class period at a typical secondary school. However, the episode can be easily broken out into segments if teachers prefer to show the program over more than one day. ABOUT THESE STOCK MARKET CRASH WORKSHEETS All student worksheets are provided in two formats: consumable and reusable. The latter option allows teachers to spend less time copying since they can make one class set that can be used all day long and/or across multiple years. If you prefer to allow students to write directly on the worksheets, however, a consumable version with answer blanks is provided as well. MORE THAN JUST AN ANSWER KEY..... There are also two answer keys: one designed for fast correcting and one intended to facilitate discussion as it includes commentary on a number of answers such as the true/false problems that are actually false statements. THE VIDEO'S GREAT... WHERE CAN YOU FIND IT? The fastest and easiest way to find the program online is to run a simple Google search. Depending on availability, you may also see it on the official PBS website or on Netflix in addition to a number of other sites. Teachers who would like to purchase a copy on DVD should look on sites like Amazon or eBay – since these outlets often offer used copies of DVDs, this is the most affordable option. New DVDs of most American Experience episodes are usually available from the PBS website. A final option is to closely watch your local PBS station for American Experience broadcast times since the Crash of 1929 episode does sometimes replay.
