Modules for Introductory Econ

Summary:
Here is some information for those teaching introductory economics using my favorite textbook: I have written four modules, or mini-chapters, with optional material that instructors can include in their courses. For instructors using the digital version of the book, these modules can be added for free with a few mouse clicks. As of now, there are modules on The Economics of Healthcare, The European Union, The Keynesian Cross, and How Economists Use Data. I expect to add more modules to the library available to instructors in the years to come. To get a sense of what these are like, here is a link to an old version of the healthcare module. For more information about these modules and the book more generally, contact your Cengage rep or John Carey.

I am the Robert M. Beren Professor of Economics at Harvard University, where I teach introductory economics (ec 10). I use this blog to keep in touch with my current and former students. Teachers and students at other schools, as well as others interested in economic issues, are welcome to use this resource.
