This site offers insight into the group's function; its strategies in the fields of human development, environmentally sustainable development, and private sector development around the world. This site would be useful when discussing global economic development policies.

tag(s): banks (10)

In the Classroom

Very sophisticated site not particularly geared to the classroom teacher.

This British site offers a web-based economic model which lets students select various combinations of economic policies and family situations to see how specific policies affect specific segments of the population. This could be a great simulation for students who want to take their study of economics a step further.

tag(s): money (180), sociology (22)

In the Classroom

Teachers can deal with the content at several levels, and the model itself is worth a try.

This is a web implementation of the popular computer game by the same name. Players must figure out how to operate their lemonade stand profitably, taking into account pricing, cost of materials, rent, and other economic factors. Students may want to try different strategies and see how they fare with their customers.

tag(s): money (180)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning center or station during a lesson on supply and demand! The site could take up to 20 minutes, so be sure to pair it with other centers that could last equally long. This site would also be better in partners, allowing for student discussion along the way.

tag(s): supply and demand (5)

Use this site as a classroom activity during a lesson on supply and demand. Have students work on the activity in pairs or cooperative learning groups. Even if you do not have time to do the entire webquest, the links provide good background information for shorter investigations.

This online exhibit from the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco offers a history of American currency, complete with descriptions, images, and explanations about how the American currency system has evolved. It would be a great supplement to introductory economics or a lesson on, "Why is a dollar worth a dollar?"

tag(s): money (180)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning center or station during a lesson on the currency debates that have existed in the American Economy. To assess student learning have students create concept maps emphasizing what they learned from the interactive tour. Use a tool such as bubbl.us (reviewed here) to create and share the concept maps.

This site offers a wonderful list of Twitter feeds to consider if you are just starting out or if you are adding to your feed related to history. The list includes the Twitter name with a link and a short description. Feeds include the Library of Congress, quotes and sayings from Thomas Jefferson, and HistoryDay (see what happened on this day in history). Feeds are separated into categories such as media, educators and students, and military to help navigate the different types.

tag(s): congress (31), history day (24), twitter (43)

In the Classroom

Create a classroom twitter account and choose feeds to follow that relate to classroom studies. Assign different students to follow the feed each week to summarize and review. Challenge students to find other history Twitter feeds to follow. Have students create a Twitter account as a historical figure as part of research projects. Looking for more ways to use twitter in the classroom? Read more about Twitter from TeachersFirst's Twitter for Teachers page.

This site provides a link to an article about how Americans use their leisure time. On the page itself, however, there are color-coded graphs that show how Americans spend an average day, leisure time, and the change in activities since 2007. More importantly, you can select to see the same information for specific ethnic groups and by gender. Mousing over the different colors of each graph allows you to see the name of the specific category being featured and its numerical equivalent. This site is very interesting when considering the unemployment rate and how that translates onto these graphs.

tag(s): charts and graphs (199), cultures (108), sociology (22), time (139)

In the Classroom

Students learning graphing have an opportunity to both understand and create their own graphs in response to this site. Have students in teams create a survey they can use to interview other class members about their families. Teams can then create an online graph using Tabblo reviewed here.

Find Streaming Videos from John Stossel to engage your students in discussions about interesting and thought-provoking issues. Each month this site posts a new video for your use, and all videos come with suggested discussion questions. Also, you will find lots of discussion topics in the archived section titled with categories like the environment, celebrities, and consumer issues, just to name a few. You don't even have to register to view the videos and discussion questions!

There are some items of interest on the top menu bar: Teacher Ideas to Share, Teacher Guides, and More Teacher Resources. You might be interested in their offer of a free DVD with selected, edited for the classroom, programs from the 20/20 T. V. series.

tag(s): endangered species (40), financial literacy (84), foreign policy (16), news (261), politics (97)

In the Classroom

Use these streaming videos to help create "background knowledge" for your student, and improve listening and note taking skills. Small groups of students could rotate through stations with the video, or you can use it with the whole class. Either way, students can practice their two column (Cornell) note taking skills using the left column for keywords and/or questions and the right side of the paper for important information about the topic they are viewing. Have students discuss and look up answers to their questions.

If using the videos as a whole class, you may want to use a discussion program that allows "backchanneling" such as Socrative,reviewed here, so everyone can comment on the issue(s) presented and see each other thoughts.

Another idea is to use the videos as a jump-off point for research by small groups. There are many huge topics you can break into parts for small groups to investigate after watching Stossel's take on it. Then challenge the groups to create a multimedia presentation using one of many TeachersFirst Edge tools reviewed here.
