Economic History for Leaders

Economic History for Leaders (EHFL) is an exciting new FTE program that combines the history and economics content of the Economic Forces in American History (EFIAH) programs with the dynamic, student-teacher format of the Economics for Leaders (EFL) programs. EHFL continues to be a cross-curricular program specifically designed to help teachers incorporate economic reasoning into their high school American history and social studies classes. University professors and mentor teachers provide in-depth lectures and activities to provide economic explanations of pivotal historical events.

Participants learn interactive teaching strategies that incorporate the actual circumstances of historical periods of study. With EHFL lesson plans, teachers can help their students engage with subject matter by taking a detailed look at the economic considerations of the historical record – in essence, allowing students to ‘re-live’ history by taking an active role in the choices that individuals had to make during key events – rather than just reading or hearing about it. Economic History for Leaders is a “must-take” course for any teacher of American history, social studies, government, civics, and economics.

  • Great opportunity to view mentor teacher/student interactions in a ‘laboratory’ setting
  • Approximately 25 teachers accepted per program
  • Two semester hours of graduate credit in economics available from the University of Colorado for $204**
  • Nationally acclaimed instructors

*Lodging at the EHFL programs is covered in full by the FTE if participants are willing to share a room with another program participant. If a private room is desired, then the participant must pay for the difference in room price.  All accommodations are on-campus housing. The room cost varies depending on the site; please contact lchang@fte.org for details.

**It is the sole responsibility of the individual teacher to make sure the credit arrangement you pursue meets the criteria set forth by your school, district, and state. To receive graduate credits, participants must be in attendance for the entire EHFL program.
