Product Description

Greetings Friend!

I'm Mrs. P and my passion is student engagement. Let me tell you- minimum wage debates are about as engaging as it gets! After all, when else will you overhear your students excitedly, yet quietly, plotting to win the debate by discussing the finer points of how the supply and demand curves interact in the labor market? When else will you hear your quieter students boldly, proudly speak up about how the local minimum wage raise has made their job hunt harder? If you enjoy watching your students come alive as they dig deeper into content, then these lessons are for you,

This lesson will teach your students all about how the government causes shortages and surpluses when controlling prices, with special emphasis on rent control and the minimum wage. For this lesson, along with lecture notes, I've included an engaging activity where students become landlords and tenants as well as critical thinking opportunities throughout the lesson. In addition, I've included a debate on raising the federal minimum wage where students will work in teams to thoroughly research the issues, create opening/closing statements, and engage in an exciting debate.

I usually teach the price controls lesson in a 50 minute period and then have students debate during the next class period.
