Product Description
This activity includes a question set for students to research comparing/contrasting the state of TN to Knox County, assignment to create a brochure from their research, and rubric to grade the brochure. This assignment could be altered to include a different state/county. I use this assignment in my Introduction to Business and Marketing course.

The standard being covered in this assignment is:
Drawing on resources such as the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development, the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development, and local Chambers of Commerce or Development Districts, investigate the current economic situation in the county and compare it to the economic situation of the state. Write a report on the findings, citing evidence from sources researched. Findings can include the unemployment rate, business growth/decline, occupation growth/decline, population changes, government operating budget, etc. Include an analysis on how economic conditions affect employment and product consumption, and draw conclusions about the implications of such conditions on the creation, expansion, and relocation of businesses.
