Abstract

This paper presents a method of teaching about the economic impact of building a professional sports arena in a metropolitan area. Designed for an upper-division, undergraduate course in Sports Economics, this teaching method is an application of the context-rich teaching strategy. It also uses a jigsaw cooperative learning technique in preparation for an individual assignment actually performing a simple economic analysis in a plausible situation. The students must decide what is and what is not important to consider, what relevant information is missing, and then use that information to advise an elected official on a proposal to use tax money to help build the sports arena.
