TEACHING OBJECTIVE –

Review for Economics Mid Term exam.

TEACHING AGENDA –

With today being a minimum day we are going to spend the time reviewing material from our previous chapters. We will be doing this in a game format. When you come into class we are going to move the desks to the sides of the room and form a line of students at the back of the room. Then one student at a time with step up to the front and answer a question. You will have 30 seconds to answer. If you get the question wrong or if you go over 30 seconds you will go to the back of the line. When you get a right answer you have earned your seat and may go sit down and observe the other questions in the review. Once everyone has gone through we will line up again and now you will have only 20 seconds to answer. As questions come up I will address them. There will also be time left in class to ask questions at the end. I have uploaded all chapter notes to today’s Student Resources section if you would like to review them.
