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.
We have developed teaching guides for many of our videos filled with compelling questions to help continue the conversation in the classroom.
Our Online Quizzes are a great way to get even more out of our videos. You can assign quizzes and activities tied to specific videos and manage your students’ results using our handy Classroom Management Tool.
We offer a selection of DVDs featuring video segments that we believe will be relevant to your classroom. You can find all these videos online, but we’ve also made FREE DVDs available to help teachers in need of an offline resource.

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.
