Let us know how you are using JEP articles in your classroom

Editors of JEP are currently collecting concrete examples of successful uses of JEP articles in classroom settings.

Chris Fleisher

In February, we asked you to share whether and how you may be using the Journal of Economic Perspectives (JEP) in your classroom. We were pleased to receive about 150 replies. As a journal, we strive to be useful to students and teachers. Your feedback will help us compile a list of specific JEP papers that have proved useful in the classroom, which can then be posted at the AEA website as a resource for other teachers of economics.

There is one last chance to contribute to this project. If you are willing to share your experience with JEP-related class material, please send an email to Timothy Taylor, Managing Editor of JEP, at taylort@macalester.edu.

This invitation is meant broadly. If you are just using one or a few JEP articles in the classroom, and they are working well for you, let us know. If you sometimes assign JEP articles to groups of students and then have the students explain the articles to the rest of the class, tell us about it. If you are running a JEP-centric class with a substantial proportion of JEP articles on the reading list, we definitely want to hear from you. Our main focus is on undergraduate courses, but if you have recommendations at the graduate level, we are glad to hear about those as well. If time permits, type some lines to let us know how long the articles have been on your reading list and what articles are working best for you and your students. Feel free just to send an email, or to attach a copy of your syllabus too. If you know of colleagues who use JEP material in their classes, please help us in spreading the word.

Thank you for your help.
