It’s in the news nearly every day lately, but how well do students really understand unemployment? And how much of what is in the news is actually covered on the AP test? In this workshop, you’ll learn about how unemployment is calculated, the different types of unemployment, and what is expected at the AP level. Participants will receive several ready-made activities to use in class.
