Inflation doesn’t just affect businesses–it affects consumers, too. In this LAP, students will discover the impact of inflation both on the economy and in their own lives. They will explore the pros and cons of inflation levels, and learn how governments attempt to control inflation rates. In the activities, students will delve into inflation rates over time, learning how inflation has impacted the prices of common products and services throughout the years.
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 inflation, 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.
