Video Lessons on the Intersection of Economics and Civics
The Bill of Rights Institute and Hoover Institution at Stanford University have launched a new curriculum that will help educators and students explore the intersection of economics and civic life in the United States.
The Building Blocks of Progress is a full multimedia, blended learning experience consisting of 13 videos and six lesson plans. The Bill of Rights Institute and Hoover Institution are offering the curriculum free of charge to teachers, school districts, and homeschooling parents throughout the United States.
Through the Building Blocks of Progress, students examine key economic concepts such as pricing, scarcity, and trade. They also explore the role of individuals, governments, and the rule of law in creating a free society and the conditions for economic prosperity. And they analyze the relationship between economic principles and natural rights, such as free speech, as well as the responsibilities and limitations placed on constitutional government in promoting economic health.
Let’s face it—blended learning is here to stay. When students can’t be in the classroom, they need the flexibility to fully engage, no matter where they are. When implemented well, blended learning programs add significant value to the student experience.
It’s time for schools to take blended learning to the next level. This freeguide from Samsung has key details on the right approach to offering more flexibility and hands-on engagement to deliver exemplary learning experiences.
