At ThinkCERCA, we know one of the best ways to engage students with important issues across the curriculum is through compelling, authentic content. With this in mind, we’re very excited to announce a partnership with We the Economy to bring teachers and students 22 new video-based economics lessons for free.
These lessons, which cover topics from government economic regulation to the relationship between human rights and the economy, were created to spark a deeper understanding in students about issues related to today’s systems of wealth.
A collaboration between Paul G. Allen’s Vulcan Productions and Morgan Spurlock’s Cinelan, We the Economy is a series of short films that takes a critical eye to the American economy. The series aims to drive awareness and establish a better understanding of the U.S. economy. Told through animation, comedy, musical, non-fiction, and scripted films, We the Economy seeks to demystify a complicated topic while empowering the public to take control of their own economic futures.
This partnership means teachers now have access to 22 challenging and innovative pieces of content to help students understand and relate to important economic issues. Exposing them to the amazing authentic content from We the Economy allows us to fulfill our goal of sparking creative, critical debate in classrooms around the nation.
