Instructor's Manual & Other Supplemental Materials

In addition to the video segments, each of our Economics DVDs also includes supplemental documents to assist you in making the most of the programs. These supplemental documents are included on each DVD. They include:

For each of the video segments, the Instructor's Manuals provide a list of the concepts covered, lesson objectives, a brief description of the video, a preview question to help you introduce the clip in an exciting manner, discussion and analysis questions, and an extension activity. Handouts for your students are also included for many of the segments.

Multiple-choice questions are provided in the test banks, with questions for each of the sections on the DVDs.

The Slide Show presentations are intended to enhance your classroom presentation. They each include numerous slides highlighting important points made in the video segments, using photos, video stills, and quotations, and posing questions for further discussion.
