Noreen Templin, Butler Community College, First Day Foundations. Break the ice on the first day of class with this activity from Macroeconomics instructor Dr. Noreen Templin. See how she ties introductory information with economic principles to give students insight into the concepts they'll learn throughout the course.


Jeffrey Hart, North Dakota State University, US Farm Report Video Quick & Commodity Analysis Quiz. Discover a more engaging approach to teaching variables that influence demand and supply by using relevant, real-world examples found in stories from the US Farm Report.
