About This Lesson

This lesson introduces students to the concept that economics is about choice, and cost-benefit analysis is the most rational way to approach that choice. Then students fill in a cost-benefit analysis chart about 5 decisions they made last summer (can be modified to be last week, yesterday, whatever), the costs, benefits, and whether or not it was the best decision they could have made.

I checked the documents, not sure which misspellings you're seeing besides one "its" that should be "it's". And the student assignment should look different based on the student's answers - every decision they make is different, and the costs and benefits are also different.

Misspellings and missing pieces in the lesson. No real guide for the teacher in terms of what things to be looking for in student answers. An example of what the student assignment should look like would be great too.
