    Economics is a tough subject to learn about, and this website aims to make it easier to understand. We The Economy is a great tool for teaching economics in a flipped classroom. Have students watch one video for homework, and discuss it together in class. Start with "What is the Economy" and make your way to "Supply & Dance, Man!" and "GDP Smackdown."

Story of Stuff (2007, OFFICIAL Version) - YouTube - 146 views

  • It'll teach you something, it'll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever.
    From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world.
    I created Stuff Survey and Film Discussion Questions for use in my classroom. Enjoy!
    I showed this video to my 7th grade tech class; it led to a great discussion. I posted screen shots from the film on Voice Thread and asked the class to comment.
