This presentation contains a whole lesson!
Specifically, this lesson is for teaching about taxation and the theory of the Laffer curve, with a lot of the theory as well as the historical evidence about its effectiveness in real life. It details a look at the substitution and income effects. The lesson also looks at tax incidence of indirect taxation, which includes a handout. The lesson has an excellent multiple choice question with student answers. This doesn't sound like a lot, however, it does raise some excellent questions and debate. This will help consolidate learning from the lesson as well as reminding students NOT to forget what they have learnt previously!! This lesson comes after 3 prior lessons on taxation that are also available in my shop and I highly recommend that you buy them as a series of lessons.
I have used the PowerPoint slides to structure the lesson, specifically slides to prompt/force myself to ask those key questions at the right moments, slides to explain keywords with short and easy explanations, prompts for me the teacher when to use the different activities, games, handouts, articles etc... that make the lesson up as well. All the teaching presentations, include starters and plenaries, normally a quick discussion, but sometimes something else.
