Find Multimedia Content for Your AP Economics Course

Summary:  Multimedia content can add a much-needed interactive component to your AP Economics course. This brief clip from the Virtual Economics CD-ROM shows you how to use multimedia content to teach specialization. 

Virtual Economics contains 51 multimedia concept demonstrations that you can integrate into all topics in AP Microeconomics and AP Macroeconomics.  The short clip above gives you a "taste" of Specialization. 

This CD-ROM contains a lesson plan for every need, and is well worth the $100 price tag. Once you own it, check out the clip on Metallica lead singer Lars Ulrich discussing property rights.  I even used this Lars Ulrich clip in my law class when we were discussing Napster and illegal downloads.
