The effects of unemployment are felt by individuals, families, communities, and the nation as a whole. Teach your students about the types, causes, and costs of unemployment.
LAPs (Learning Activity Packages) 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 the impact of unemployment rates, 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. Click here for a sample of the student section. The instructor section features a comprehensive discussion guide, complete practice- (short answer) and post-tests (multiple-choice) with descriptive keys, student activities, and more.
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 18 slides.
"The group activities give students the opportunity to talk out the content of the LAP. This is beneficial to many students." - Dawn Brown, Habersham Central High School, GA
