  1. Greetings Friend! It’s so easy to turn economic indicators into a boring series of definitions and calculations (think Ben Stein in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off). Yet this unit is one of the most relevant to students’ lives outside high school since they’re bound to be affected by economic performance t

Product Description

Greetings Friend!

Allow me to introduce myself- I'm Mrs. P and my main goal with all my lessons is student engagement! At every turn, I load my lessons with relevant questions that connect what students are learning to the real world. My favorite part of this lesson is when students "diagnose the US economy" and put that business cycle knowledge to the test! They love chatting about the different indicators while they research- and they love guessing where the economy will be by the time they graduate! I can't wait for you to see your students come alive as they understand and then research the business cycle.

This lesson will teach your students all about what the business cycle is, the 4 phases, and what indicators economists use! In addition, there is a research activity where students find current US economic performance across 7 indicators and diagnose our current business cycle phase. 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:

  • 1 Written Warm Up & Opening Activity
  • 1 Essential Question
  • An Engaging Lecture with Thinking Activities & Think-Pair-Shares throughout
  • Student Fill In Notes for the Lecture (including Warm Up)
  • Diagnosing the US Economy Student Research Activity (9 questions)
  • Suggested Lesson Plan

I usually teach the Business Cycle lesson in one 50 minute class period.

This resource is also a part of this discounted bundle: Economic Indicators Research-Based Unit Bundle
