        Ten Trillion and Counting Teacher's Guide

        Students will learn important economic terms related to government budgeting and how government pays its debt in this Teacher's Guide to FRONTLINE: "Ten Trillion and Counting." The lesson on government borrowing begins with an overview of important economic terms. The main lesson is a budget simulation game that helps students understand the choices the government faces when allocating scarce resources while not exceeding deficit and debt levels that could put our economy at risk in the future. An optional additional lesson engages students in researching and creating a budget for the United States.
