Tools That Help You Teach Better


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

Teacher's Guides

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

Online Quizzes

A great way to get even more out of our videos. You can assign quizzes and manage your students’ results using our handy Classroom Management Tool. We also offer our quizzes through Google Forms, perfect for your Google Classroom.

Free Classroom DVDs

You can stream all of our videos, but we’ve also made free DVDs available to help teachers in need of an offline resource.

Tools That Help You Learn More

Stossel in the Classroom isn’t just for teachers; it’s for students, too. Our videos will help you learn in an entertaining and engaging way, and our contests and college resources are opportunities just waiting to be seized.

Student Contests

We host an Essay Contest and a Video Contest every year, giving students opportunities to showcase their knowledge and win great prizes.

College Resources

We’ve compiled a list of resources to help make the pursuit 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 versions of the segments today. I look forward to hearing what you and your students think.

Sincerely,

John Stossel
