In this lesson plan, students view the DVD, In Plain English: Making Sense of the Federal Reserve, A Virtual Tour. They work in groups to determine the important information from the DVD to include in a concept map—a diagram of words and/or pictures to describe the structure and functions of the Federal Reserve. The groups pair and review one another’s concept maps. Concept maps are posted, and all class members review them. Finally, a class discussion reviews the important content related to the structure and functions of the Federal Reserve System.
