Even with the best curriculum a teacher occasionally needs to shake things up. FTE Hot Topic lessons are timely discussion lessons that help students apply economics reasoning to stories from current events. FTE’s 5 Economics Reasoning Proposition provide the intellectual framework for each Hot Topic. By using this framework teachers can give students the tools they need to build an understanding of their world and the current events happening around them.
Each Hot Topic lesson comes with a teacher guide and includes answer guides and supplement resources. Each lesson utilizes FTE resources, articles or video clips, and other media in an easy to use format.
Although some topics may no longer seem “hot”, the application of economics reasoning is timeless.
