Abstract

We provide 11 short exercises that can be used in a principles of microeconomics classroom which incorporate media clips from the Economics Media Library. The exercises have been used in both small and large classroom settings and take less than 15 minutes to complete. These teaching guides can be a helpful first step for educators interested in introducing small activities to engage students in the classroom.
