Teaching Economics with Parks and Recreation

P-Hacking Made Easy (Herndon)
July 3, 2023

We outline five teaching guides that can be used by economic educators to teach topics as varied as gender pay gaps to government bailouts. Each guide is based on a variety of scenes from the NBC television show Parks and Recreation, which are freely available to educators and students online. Each guide is framed around student-to-student discussion to increase active learning in the classroom.
