The approach seems spot on to me. I particularly like the focus
on economic theory in practice that does not involve a lot
of mathematics or charts. I am very excited about this text.
I really don’t have anything else to compare it to and
right now I am mostly trying to push this info into
my teaching on my own with very little textual help.

You have hit upon an important market for economics in the core
social studies and, importantly,
in a manner that will make the subject attractive for many classes
where economics is given a
passing glance because the materials available to teach the topics
are too technical.

|I love the Table of Contents.
The subjects are engaging and thought provoking.

It was really fun to read, I can’t wait to see the final product. You’re
creating something very
special and unique. There is no other supplement for High School students that
even attempts to
do what this supplement does….
Montclair High School, NJ
I believe this supplement will fill a gap in the current
American history curriculum. … I
seen other supplements integrating economics and history. … Most of the
books I have are not
intended for classroom use and as such, require a lot of time to create lessons
Arkansas City High School, KS
I like the approach ... (and) … agree with the author’s
rationale that economics is often left out of
history education, which is doing a disservice to the subject.
Hilton High School, NY
The template for each chapter is excellent. I like the approach
of examining historical facts which
are derived from historians and applying economic principles to analyze these
facts all together ...
(and) help students to solve mysteries/problems and gain a better understanding
of U.S. history.
