Writing prompts are an engaging way to review the major concepts, ideas, and vocabulary terms related to the difficult subject of economics. Major themes include: supply and demand, needs and want, banking, saving and spending, opportunity costs, specialization, four sectors of the US economy, personal budgets, trade, interdependence, and more! The writing prompt activity can also be completed in a center or as a whole group introduction/conclusion to the day's lesson. Correlates with GA third, fourth, and fifth grade GSE standards but generic for any state and most grades!
Each of the 45 writing prompts covers one specific element and is taken directly from the GSE economics portions of social studies standard in Georgia. (However, useful for any teacher studying Economics) In the end, there are two blank pages for writers who may need additional space and a rubric for grading!
I hope that you enjoy this product as much as I have in my own classroom. With all of the standards that we must teach, I have a difficult time fitting in daily writing. This product is the solution to that problem and is an easy, “print-and-go” way to integrate social studies into writing instruction or vice versa. I sincerely hope that this product will make your life as a social studies teacher easier while helping your students to think more critically about history and the important events that have shaped our nation’s history.
