I think that the learning objects that Jason, Louis, and Gary provided were wonderful resources for teacher's to use in the classroom. This would be a very difficult topic for high school students to understand, even college students like myself, and these learning objects helped to aid in understanding the topic more fully. I really liked the origins of the financial/economic crisis chart from the NYT. It allows students to have one resource where they can see an overview of the causes that led to the crisis. With so much information involved in the crisis, a chart is a perfect way for students to see "the bigger picture" and how many factors contributed to the crisis. To improve this learning object, I think it would be a good idea to include defintions at the bottom of the chart. There are some words that students may not understand, such as: monetary policy, federal budget deficits, hegemony, CDSs, MBSs, and CDOs to name a few. This chart would become even more effective because will not have to need another source to understand the chart. Everything they need would be in one place.
