Macroeconomics can be difficult to understand, especially for those people who have little experience with the world of big finance. The theories and formulas needed to understand such phenomena as national supply and demand curves prove challenging for many.
What educators needed for a long time was something that can help make macroeconomics interesting. Now, this DVD has done just that. Using stories taken from ABC News reports, the producers have made available an informative, yet attention grabbing presentation.
The stories address situations taken from the real world. This means viewers do not have to sit through a long lesson filled with what they might see as boring numbers and statistics. Instead, the audience learns about taxes, trade policies and layoffs through the lives of actual people. Watching this DVD will make “Econ 101” more enjoyable.
There is also a bit of history that students who enjoy learning from the past will find intriguing. The early-20th century “Robber Barons,” including John D. Rockefeller and Cornelius Vanderbilt, receive due attention.
Instructors will find an accompanying online guide to use for lesson planning. Both high school teachers and introductory college-level professors will find this product useful.Teaching Tools for Macroeconomics, Government, and International Trade (High School Edition) Enhanced DVD
