About the event
A debate currently ongoing in Congress is over whether the economy is in need of more aid and stimulus as the pandemic continues. The lesson includes use of a jigsaw activity in which students examine various economic and social measures, and after considering the information, deciding on if they believe future aid and stimulus is needed at the risk of longer term debts.
This is part of a special, three part series.
