Project Title: Market Mania: A Personalized Approach to Economics

Learning Innovation Grant Recipient

In the unit “Market Mania” students will complete a long-term project at their own pace. This unit will address the economic content standards already in place in a more individualized process. At the beginning of the year students will be introduced to the project and do their own research. The project will require students to apply for jobs, keep a personal finance account, design a product, market the product, and actually design and sell the product as well. Students will use technology to enhance their projects. The project will also allow students to focus on their strengths and take control of their own learning.
