If you are a blog reader who teaches introductory economics using my favorite textbook, you might be interested in checking out the blog map, which has just been updated in response to user feedback.
Here is how it works. Go to the blog map and click on the chapter you are teaching. The blog map will give you a list of recent blog posts related to the material in that chapter. If that is not enough for you, click on "Archived Posts" and you will get even more. You can use this resources to find recent examples in the news to help spark class discussion.
The chapter numbers refer to the complete version of my text, Principles of Economics. If you are using one of the versions of the book with only a subset of the chapters, the chapter numbers may be different, but the chapter titles are the same. So you should not have much trouble finding what you need.
