UPDATE: Resource now includes an introductory questionaire based on choice architecture TED Talk, there is a completed graphic organizer, and there is a case study assessment.
Resource I created based on the cognitive bias that keeps people from making good economic decisions. Source information is mostly from wikipedia and the book discussed on the first page. I would strongly suggest you edit the introduction to fit your students, but each of the pages covering a different cognitive bias would be a great source for any econ or financial literacy course.
The reading comes along with questions and graphic organizers. In my classroom, I jig-saw it and have the students present to each other.
As behavioral economics is still being studied, there is a lot more you could do with this. I often add a second project where I have kids design experiments to test the claims in the reading.
