Teacher Workshop

The goal of the Teaching Economics in American History (TEAH) program is to improve the historical understanding of young people by strengthening the economic knowledge of their instructors through a dynamic, interactive workshop for American history teachers. This comprehensive program provides Wisconsin and Midwest teachers with the instructional tools they need to bring the economic way of thinking to light in a historical context.


The supplementary textbook provided is the award-winning Economic Episodes in American History. The workshop presenters, Dr. Mark Schug, Dr. William Wood, Dr. Tawni Ferrarini and Dr. Scott Niederjohn, are co-authors of the second edition of the text.

No history of America is complete without an economic perspective. Economic Episodes in American History is an innovative textbook supplement for middle and high school levels that will enrich and expand your students’ understanding of United States history and the role economics has played in shaping the American story.
