Dear Educators,

Once I learned some economics, I started doing TV stories that illustrated basic economic principles. Teachers often wrote me, “Can I get a copy of that? I wished I’d recorded it for my class!” Center for Independent Thought volunteered to do just that! Now teachers tell me that the free videos bring lesson plans to life, and also fulfill curriculum requirements.

More than 150,000 teachers have made Stossel in the Classroom part of their lesson plans. We invite you to provide your feedback to help us improve future materials.

I hope you’ll join these teachers, and I look forward to hearing what you and your students think.
