Yellowstone National Park makes economics fun!
by Cindy Ivanac-Lillig
We have recently had some discussion on this blog about the importance of changing the way we teach economics, as our methodologies are not bearing fruit in terms generating increaased student interest and enthusiasm. There were some great comments in response to the blog entitled, "Is economics too hard or too boring?." I had shared in that entry that I would like to occasionally use the blog to showcase educational initiatives that are interesting and experiential.
I found a great article regarding a program Indiana State University recently ran. They took high school teachers on a trip to Yellowstone National Park and focused on presenting economic material through public park policy discussions. The teachers, as you will read, found it eye-opening and have since changed the way they teach their economics class. I hope you find the article as interesting as I did. It actually seems like a lot of fun!

I read your site frequently and that i just thought I'd say continue the terrific work! It might sound weird but my browser doesn't appear to be in a position to display your article rightly It looks like an entire chunk of if is not correctly displayed and the layout of the page doesn't appear to be right. Can you confirm that this post has been set up for Opera?
