An Economic Snapshot: Language Arts & Social Studies/ Economics Curriculum
Source: MacNeil/Lehrer Productions | Type: lesson / video

Students will explore the current state of the economy on a national as well as a local level and compare their perception of the state of the economy with recent media reporting. They will then create a “state of the economy report” on economic conditions in their local area. This is keyed to the Omaha Public Schools and McRel Standards and is useful for all schools.
