I will be attending the Economic Forces in American History in June and the Environment/Economy workshop in July. With luck they will be full of classroom activities- I think I use at least four from Economics for Leaders.
Ever since I got on board the simulations/games/experinomics train, Econ has transformed from being a fairly dreary subject to something that I enjoy tremendously. The more the better.
My main problem is that simulations rarely extend to some of the real meat of an economics course- the data-filled stuff like GDP, unemployment, AS/AD. Most of the simulations I use are for the early units of study, getting kids to think economically.
