Free Technology for Teachers: Three Resources for Teaching About Surviving on Minimum Wage

"Teaching economics is one of my favorite things to do each year. A big part of the reason that I enjoy teaching economics is that learning about money gets my students excited about class. Another reason that it's fun to teach is that economics easily lends itself to simulation activities that get kids actively engaged in learning. In the past I've used simulations created by the Buck Institute and simulations created by Biz Ed. While those simulations are good, I've always wanted something that students could personalize just little bit more. Therefore, a couple of years ago I created the outline and materials for a simulation about living on minimum wage in the United States."

Cool resource. A game that causes students to think about economic prospects. Promotes economic literacy. What does happen with a low income person/family? Also allows you to put in further economic concepts. Wages, money supply and demand. Goes in with Haslam wanting 55% of persons to have post secondary education. Importance of such.

This page provides some interesting (and humorous) pictures for an activity in which students ask themselves "what's wrong with this picture?" Each picture is an example of how economic concepts could be applied in mundane (and humorous) situations. My favorite is #7!
