I'm Mrs. P and I'm all about student engagement. So when the team leader of each competing group of Econ students runs (okay, speed walks) up to me excitedly whispering the factor shifting the demand curve, it brings a smile to my face. Bringing interactive games, activities, and lectures to my Economics classroom renews my passion for teaching every day. I can't wait for you to see your students come alive as they learn about the demand curve.
These 4 lessons will teach students all about the demand curve. I usually teach these lessons the first four days of my Supply and Demand Unit. Along with lecture notes, I've included engaging activities and critical thinking opportunities throughout the lessons as well as plenty of practice for students as they familiarize themselves with these fundamental Economic concepts.
What to Expect:
-Detailed Suggested Lesson Plans
-Daily Written Warm Ups & Opening Activities
-Daily Essential Questions
-Engaging Lectures with Thinking Activities & Think-Pair-Shares throughout
-Student Fill In Notes for Lectures (including Warm Ups)
-Practice Worksheets for Students (& Teacher Key)
-Demand Curve Review Quiz (& Teacher Key)
-Shifting the Demand Curve Mini Project ( with Simple Rubric & Student Samples)
I usually teach these lessons in four 50 minute periods, but they can be combined for a block period schedule as well.
-Class set of included worksheets
-Blank sheets of paper or small posters
