The world economy is becoming the “rule” rather than the “unusual.” Nations like China and India are rapidly growing economically strong which is having a major impact on both the US and world economy. Help your students understand how the economic systems of a nation, or the world of nations, impact their daily lives. They can begin to understand the various elements of the economy and how each interacts with others. Explore how economic models are used to predict the future strength and how “controls” are used to keep inflation and depression from happening. You will also explore other Internet tools including communications systems, online videos, information sharing programs, photo and graphic production, online bibliography services, wikis, webquests and many other resources. You will then synthesize these resources to design and develop a lesson plan, or other type of project, that you can use with your students.
