Teachers will be able to:
– Understand AP Macro Concepts on National Income and Price Determination
– Describe components of aggregate demand and factors that contribute to changes in aggregate demand
– Learn how to utilize activities and lessons from the AP Macro Fourth Edition to prepare students for AP tests
– Obtain additional resources and materials to share with their students to enhance student learning.
In collaboration with Minnesota Council for Economic Education, this content-driven session will examine the components of GDP and explore factors that can influence aggregate demand. Participants will come away with the comfort with the subject matter necessary to answer the toughest questions from students in advanced economics classes. Additionally, we’ll dive into lessons, resources, and other materials that educators can use in their classrooms as they teach this topic. This session is the first part of a four-session unit in which the entire aggregate demand/supply model is studied, and part of a larger series covering Advanced Placement concepts in Macroeconomics.
