Economics We header

Period 1 – Economics

While I am gone today you will begin working on your scripts for your Non-Price Competition Projects.

Step 1 – Form your groups (4-6 people)

Step 2 – Begin writing your script. The script is to be detailed like a movie script. I want to know who is where and saying what and when.

Step 3 – Remember the common good we voted to do for the product is Chapstick. It is $1.49 and .15 oz (4 grams). Everyone must use the same price and size of the product.

Step 4 – Remember that the goal is to outsell the other groups by encouraging people to buy this product without changing its price.

Any problems or concerns that come up please e-mail me at ctyler@Stockton.k12.ca.us I will have my cell phone on me today and will try to answer e-mails when possible.
