Fiscal and Monetary Policy via the Internet and Where Did the Too Many Dollars Come From? Lesson Plans.
This document contains two lesson plans. The first, "Fiscal and Monetary Policy via the Internet," seeks to expose high school students to Internet technology while introducing them to fiscal and monetary policy. Information gathering skills, economic understanding, policy application, and economic content retention should all be enhanced by this program. The lesson plan states a purpose; sets forth objectives; lists materials needed; gives procedures; and presents content material. The second lesson plan, "Where Did the Too Many Dollars Come From?" aims to have students experience "demand-pull inflation" while gaining insight into three major sources of the "too many dollars," which chase after the "too few goods and services." The lesson plan states a purpose; sets forth objectives; lists materials needed; and gives step-by-step procedures. (BT)
