Using Primary Sources in History
This presentation will be a hands-on exercise as together, we will look at some primary resources the way I do in my history courses. Be prepared to get to be a bit of an historian for the evening. We will examine sources to see what we can learn and what it is historians are looking for.
Stimulating Competitive Markets in the Classroom
This presentation will put you in the place of a competitive ﬁrm – competing with the other ﬁrms in the room to attract consumers while earning a proﬁt. This simulation, which I use in my introductory courses, will highlight some of the dynamics of competitive markets.
