First in an eight-part series of professional development workshops designed to give high school teachers ideas about how to present economics in a way that will excite, inform, and entice students. Illustrates why economics is much more than a bundle of concepts. Teachers in actual classrooms demonstrate some key ideas that constitute an economic way of thinking: opportunity costs, trade offs, incentives, and voluntary trade. Hosted by Timothy Taylor.
