Unemployment in Elkhart

Students explore reasons for and solutions to unemployment. In this unemployment lesson plan, students make a list of luxury goods and discuss why sales of luxury goods would slump in times of unemployment. They then would explore infrastructure and why it would be invested in unemployment. After, they would explore different community's unemployment rates, and come up with solutions to it by creating a "town meeting" in the classroom.
