Economics in World History

November 4, 2017, Denver

This class is centered around the national Council for Economic Education publication, Focus: Middle School World History. The carefully crafted and well-vetted lesson book consists of 21 ready-to-go lessons that tie economic concepts into various episodes throughout world history. The time frame is ancient civilizations through the Renaissance. A mentor teacher will demonstrate some representative lessons and our college instructor will help us acquire a fuller understanding of the economics behind each. All participants will receive a complimentary copy of the lesson book, valued at $30.00. If you’re trying to integrate multiple social studies disciplines into your instruction, this class can help. The lessons and concepts are easily adaptable for high school teachers as well.
