Econ Toolbox for Engaging High School Students

September 14 5:00-6:00pm ET
Time: 60 mins,
Updated: January 19 2023,
Presenter: John Kruggel


In this webinar teachers will be able to:

  • Develop lessons using arts and crafts to teach economics to high schoolers.
  • Apply current events to existing activities to make them more approachable and applicable.
  • Create their own media library to store video clips as a way to make content more relevant.

This video is available to view for EconEdLink members only.


This webinar will demonstrate a new activity using arts and crafts to teach about productivity and specialization. We will show how to adapt that activity to illustrate comparative and absolute advantage and gains from trade. We will cover ways to adapt existing “greatest hits” like the econoland simulation and the market activity to include current economic trends. We will conclude by demonstrating a tool you can use to cultivate and maintain your own economic media library to use with your students.
