Welcome to

Our New Site!

We’re working to make the Stossel in the Classroom experience better than ever. Please pardon our dust during our remodel. If you need any assistance, don’t hesitate to contact us.






Teaching Guides

We have developed teaching guides for many of our videos filled with compelling questions to help continue the conversation in the classroom.

Online Assignments – COMING SOON

We are in the process of re-designing what was formerly known as the “classroom extension” to help our teachers have more control over assigning our videos to students, quizzing results, and class managment.

Free Classroom DVDs

Every year, the team at Stossel in the Classroom compiles a group of video segments that we believe to be relevant to the classroom. You can find these videos online, but we have made FREE DVDs available to help teachers needing an offline resource.

Tools That Help You Teach Better

Stossel in the Classroom is committed to helping educators bring better economic education to our school systems. We believe that by bringing a balanced approach to economic education, we can help the next generation become better caretakers of society.

Tools That Help You Learn More

Stossel in the Classroom was made for students. We have a passion to help you learn more about the economics of the world through a free market lens. We have created many great resources to help you learn. To get started, register below. It’s FREE!


Online Quizzes

Many of our video segments have quizzes to test your knowledge as a student. You may enroll for your personal knowledge or as a classmate at your local school! Quizzes are graded automatically, and you can track your progress!


Stossel in the Classroom hosts contests every year for high school students to showcase their knowledge on free market economics. As a member you can participate in the contests, and if you win, meet John Stossel! (The prize money is pretty great too.)

College Resources

To help make the college hunt easier for students, we have compiled a list of excellent resources to help make the decision of higher education less complicated.

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!”

Unfortunately, I couldn’t. So I was thrilled when the 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 request your free DVD or access our streaming version of the segments today. I look forward to hearing what you and your students think.
