Just how much does our economy produce? How does it compare
to other countries? How can we understand the health of economies across the
world? Gross domestic product is a comprehensive measure of an economy’s
output. Use this LAP to teach your students all about gross domestic product,
how to calculate and use it, and its advantages and flaws for governments and
LAPs are comprehensive instructional packages that include all elements of a performance-oriented lesson plan. This LAP includes a student handout (with CopyIT! permission) that includes information about gross domestic product, a (So What?) discussion of why it's important to learn, ideas (Make it Pay!) for immediate application, and a short (Gray Zone) case addressing ethical issues. The instructor section features a comprehensive discussion guide, complete practice- (short answer) and post-tests (multiple-choice) with descriptive keys, student activities, and more.
As an added bonus, instructors will receive a second version of the student guide—in color and designed specifically for use on electronic devices. This additional student guide is easier for instructors to share with students via email, shared drive, or learning management system and easier for students to view and read electronically.

Bring your discussions to life with our PowerPoint presentation featuring a broad range of graphics and special effects to help keep students interested. This professionally produced presentation consists of 26 slides.
"GDP is a difficult lesson to present to students. I think this LAP is very thorough and reinforces the content with research and links to further enhance the topic of GDP."
