RWE Assignments for Economics

Real World Economics

  • Please go here for full PDF copy of RWE guidelines
  • Please go here for list of reputable news sources.
  • Please go here for excellent example of RWE presentation.

A major goal in this economics course will be to look at economics from a Real World perspective.  Instead of seeing the subject from text only,  it is important that we understand how economics affects us on a local, national,  and international scale.  In order to insure that this remains a course focus – we will spend many Fridays on Real World Economics presentations.  These presentations will stem from two separate types of assignments.  Each of these assignments will come from current news sources.  Real World Economics will constitute the 25% project portion of your Marking Period grade.  Make sure on ALL RWE Assignments (S & T) that you turn in your chosen news article in an actively read format with your completed assignment.  You will be graded on your active reading, and it will be included in the final assignment grade.  If you are working with a partner, both individuals must turn in their actively read article.
