        Support Materials | The Economics Classroom: Workshop 6

        Macroeconomics is the study of the behavior of the economy as a whole—and the whole often behaves differently than the individual parts. This set of lesson plans accompanies the one-hour video workshop that illustrates activities that teach about the basic measurement tools of any economy: gross domestic product (GDP), unemployment, and inflation. These measurement tools can seem abstract, but GDP and economic growth, unemployment, and inflation can have a profound effect on students' future welfare, their job opportunities, the level of their prospective earnings, and the prices they will pay for the things they buy.
