Are You An Economic Nerd? is a fun interactive writing exercise that will certainly engage your class. I have designed this particular lesson to focus on identifying Economic Principles and applying concepts of Supply and Demand through the façade of having students becoming ECONOMIC NERDS.
This lesson uses the likeness of the current most “popular nerds” from the Big Bang. Everything in this unit comes from free sources off the internet. Students will identify economic terms through an actual script, and ultimately cite and explain key economic terms in a writing activity. The will scale themselves through different levels until they become an "Economic Nerd".
