As I explored the redesigned EconEdLink website, I started to wonder how students are perceiving the ongoing recession.
Is it changing their buying habits and financial views? Is it making them view their education, or their future, differently? What lessons do you use to prepare them for our current economy, and what "real-world" examples do you use?
It's great to see economics and personal finance becoming more integrated in the classroom. These are essential life lessons that students need to understand, especially given the current state of the economy, and how their lives are impacted on a daily basis.
The new EconEdLink website provides a wealth of information that helps educators easily incorporate lessons and activities with current economic data into the classroom. I especially love the access to the current macroeconomic data section!
