Allow me to introduce myself- I'm Mrs. P and I love student engagement. So when I teach this GDP lesson (& student research activities), I'm thrilled when I hear my students excitedly nudging their friends, saying things like "did you see Liechtenstein's GDP per capita?! Why is it so high?!" I love watching them think critically about a topic that could otherwise be (mis)interpreted as dry. I can't wait for you to see your students come alive as they understand and then research GDP across the world.
This lesson will teach your students all about what GDP is and how we calculate it! In addition, there are two research assignments that challenge students to compare the GDP and GDP per capita of various countries as well as examine indicators of standard of living. For this lesson, along with lecture notes, I've included an engaging opening activity (no prep required!) and critical thinking opportunities throughout the lesson.
What to Expect:
I usually teach the GDP lesson in two class periods (140 minutes total).
