Chapters broken up into Micro and Maco with tests/quizzes and videos included plus a semester final. For each PPT I have also included a student note-taking guide to keep the students focused on what is being taught. ( NEW PPT's are completed)

1. Micro
This is the collection of chapters that focus on the smaller parts of the economy. Each chapter includes a direct teaching component, videos from the PPT, lessons, and quizzes that go with each chapter. With each chapter, I typically use Mondays for Current Events and then spend 3 days of the week on the teaching and Fridays is for quizzes and working on projects or books that are being read.

2. Macro
This is a collection of chapters dealing with the chapter as a whole. Each chapter includes a direct teaching component, videos from the PPT, lessons, and quizzes that go with each chapter. With each chapter, I typically use Mondays for Current Events and then spend 3 days of the week on the teaching and Fridays is for quizzes and working on projects or books that are being read.

3. Semester Final
Includes review sheet and final and review sheet.

4. Econ Daily Lecture / Activities
This is a very simple version of the Micro/Macro activities from above. I would consider doing this with a workshop or Special Ed class.

Not sure where I got this but it is a good supplement to what I am doing in case I need something quick to support the chapter I am teaching

6. Visual Representation
This is a great way to get students engaged in the chapter and takes 20-25 minutes.
