Product Description
Are you looking for the perfect activity that will engage your students and give them an opportunity to put principles into practice, leading them down a road toward a deeper comprehension of the types of unemployment and how to calculate the unemployment rate? Look no further. This is the one you've been looking for!

This activity includes:

1) This "Unemployment" Activity includes 4 parts. It begins with a vividly colorful graphic organizer that asks your students to define each type of unemployment and identify important characteristics that differentiate each. Next, students will apply what they've learned to list the qualifications to be considered part of the labor force and analyze several different case examples and whether they are included as labor participants. Next, students will investigate 9 separate cases of unemployment and must critically think to classify each as one of the types of unemployment they've learned about. Students will be asked to express their findings and provide evidence to back their conclusions. Finally, students will be asked to use data provided to calculate the unemployment rates for two countries in two separate years, and then discuss flaws with the unemployment rate.

This activity can be used in many different ways in the classroom. Students can work independently, in pairs or this activity can be used as a jigsaw in order to facilitate a class wide discussion about the topics discussed in the activity.

2) A detailed answer key to the lesson activity to save you time and help guide student comprehension.

This activity can also be found in a bundle paired with a PowerPoint, Keynote and PDF version of a fully customizable lecture found here:
