2016 One-Day Programs

Some economic issues –  international trade, natural disasters, command economies, the environment – are perennial features in an always-changing world scene. The tools of economic reasoning empower students to make sense of change as they identify and explain the similarities underlying unique events and contexts. FTE one day programs offer news- and issues-based lessons to supplement history, economics, global studies, contemporary problems, geography, and civics curricula. Instructional units are comprised of  5-7 stand alone lessons, teacher background outlines, classroom activity instructions and demonstrations, and (regularly updated) source lists.  Topics include:

  • The Economic Demise of the Soviet Union
  • Issues in International Trade
  • The Economics of Disasters
  • The Economics of Water and the Environment
  • Economic Forces in American History (1-day version)

One-day programs are excellent in-service options. The FTE  will partner with school districts or local economics or social studies organizations to offer workshops. Half-day, evening, and full-day (including Saturday) scheduling is available.
