Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy
These short 6 clips document how Seniors in the Class of 2009 dealt with a contracting economy and making post-high school choices. MSNBC followed (5) graduating students from the town of Elkhart, Indiana where their unemployment reached as high as 25% and looked at how these teenagers dealt with their future outlook.  MSNBC followed up a year later to see where the teens where at and how they are dealing with their choices.  This is quite an eye opener most of your students.
