Many students (and teachers) are huge sports fans and illustrating economic concepts using real-world examples from the world of professional sports engages students in a way that abstract models canâ€™t. Professional sports offers many opportunities to teach fundamental economic concepts such as supply and demand, incentives, comparative advantage, and many more. This collection of lessons will give you fresh ideas for teaching beyond the textbook.
