The Economics of Recycling

Students examine the situation in Japan in which they are required to pay to recycle large appliances. They compare and contrast the incentives available to citizens of Japan and the United States who recycle. They predict how consumers might react when they have to pay a fee. In groups, they create strategies for reducing the amount of waste in landfills.

I've enjoyed being able to see other teachers' great ideas and implement them in the classroom. Also, the ability to use another teacher's PowerPoint and edit as needed is a huge boon as it saves time (especially since I am teaching a new topic this year).
