In this lesson, students read an excerpt from Les Mis - how Father Madeline/Jean Valjean becomes wealthy. NO PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE OF LES MISERABLE IS REQUIRED. After students read the excerpt, they complete the reading guide questions (7 total). The first few questions review students on factors of production and innovation/entrepreneurship. Two questions require students to apply supply/demand concepts (includes a graphing question). For Question 7, you show a video clip (youtube) for students to watch and answer. I also gave you a link that includes an additional video if you are interested. A key is provided. PLEASE EMAIL ME IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS.
