ECONOMIC EPISODES IN AMERICAN HISTORY
The author team of Economic Episodes in American History is proud to team up with Stossel in the Classroom to tell you about our innovative teaching resource.
No history of America, and no engaged citizen, is complete without an economic perspective. Economic Episodes in American History is a unique textbook supplement that will enrich and expand your students’ understanding of U.S. history and the role economics has played, and continues to play, in shaping the American story.
The text provides an economic analysis of key events in American history often overlooked in standard American history textbooks. Each brief chapter of the book focuses on one of over 30 engaging historical episodes, and can be taught independently, and in the sequence that best aligns with your U.S. history curriculum. Most importantly, no previous course in economics is required by the student.
Economic Episodes in American History provides a non-quantitative understanding of economic principles, and uses these principles to analyze the behaviors of individuals, businesses, and government, for a deeper and richer understanding of American history.
The author team is comprised of Mark Schug, Bill Wood, Tawni Ferrarini and M. Scott Niederjohn - each a state and national award-winning economic educator.
Members of the author team will be conducting a two-hour webinar
