Viewing the Environment through an Economic Lens and Saving the Environment with Economic Ideas

Introducing two new innovative sets of lessons for high school teachers in social studies, business, agriculture education, and science-related fields.

Many students have a keen interest in the environment.  Social studies, business, agriculture education and science teachers can bring environmental and social challenges to life for students by teaching sustainability through an integration of economics, ethics and ecology, and by demonstrating how solutions to environmental challenges can be found in economic ideas.  Be one of the first to be introduced to 16 new lessons in economics and the environment applicable to a variety of courses and aligned with standards.  Leave inspired!
