Product Description
Lawrence Reed wrote up the short essay, "I, Pencil," which explores NCSS standard #7 perfectly. Students will go home with the essay to read. In class, the teacher will separate the students into three groups: Production, Distribution, and Consumption, and then the class will decide what product they want to dissect next class. Students in the groups will then use a provided piece of poster paper and markers to create a colorful poster depicting what their group was assigned in accordance to the class-chosen product. They should use their knowledge from "I, Pencil" with this activity.

This is good for something at the end of the year as a recap, and it introduces the idea of Austrian economics, which will differ from Keynesian. This could very well open up economics for those who may have struggled with Keynesian, but understand Austrian.

I created this during graduate school and was allowed to use it in an AP Economics course. The teacher now uses it and students from last year still recall everything from the lesson.
