Earlier this month, we received an email from educator Brian Page about a lesson he had created on Buying an Automobile. First and foremost, we want to thank Brian for sharing such a great lesson with us. Second, we want to highlight some of the awesome things about his lesson below! If you are interested in using Brian’s materials, click here to access his resources in Google Drive, which are in “View Only” mode. To use them in your classroom, simply go to File and either click “Make a copy” OR “Add to My Drive”.
Brian describes what led him to create this lesson:
“This lesson uses the experiential learning method, which I prefer to use when at all possible. Before diving into the lesson, I need to provide context. I did not write the lesson with the intention of sharing it with others. So there is not a “teacher guide” with standard alignment and teacher specific nomenclature. We are a 1:1 school, so the lesson is designed for students who have access to a computer. Most importantly, much of the commentary I use in the video and some lesson requirements include the integration of behavioral economics. I scaffold such strategies throughout
