Tools That Help You Teach


Stossel in the Classroom is committed to helping educators bring better education to our school systems. We believe that by bringing different perspectives on subjects like economics, government, and current events, we can teach students to think critically about the biggest issues facing us today.

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

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
