This is a brief 2 page reading on Laissez Faire & Adam Smith. Pages 1 & 2 have reading text in the left column and questions in the right column. Students can find the answers to the questions in the left column next to the question. There is an answer key included so students can SELF CHECK their answers to pages 1 & 2. I allow students to keep pages 1 & 2 of the packet as notes. Once they have completed it and done the self check, page three contains different questions they can answer based on the reading. This page I collect to assess their knowledge.
The entire packet should take no more than 15-20 minutes for students to complete. I've used this as a homework or classwork assignment depending upon the school year. This reading has received positive feedback from my students.
