Teaching Economics Using Children's Literature

About Teaching Economics Using Children's Literature

Using children's literature to teach economics is an excellent strategy to economize on scarce instructional time. ICEE has worked with the Indiana Department of Education to revise the popular Teaching Economics Using Children's Literature curriculum, which is distributed by the Council for Economic Education. The curriculum is available free to Indiana teachers at in-service programs. For training opportunities, contact your local Center for Economic Education.

This curriculum has interdisciplinary lessons on 24 popular books, such as The Doorbell Rang, Uncle Jed's Barbershop, and Holes.

Five additional lessons from the first edition are also available.
