The Center for Learning has a new website!

Don't miss a beat

The Center for Learning was founded over 40 years ago by a team of innovative literature, language arts, and social studies instructors. Their mission: to help teachers excel in the classroom by providing values-based educational materials that promote critical thinking.

Fundamentals of Economics

These 70 activity-driven lessons form a semester-long survey course that teaches content knowledge through detailed readings supported by skill-building and critical-thinking challenges. The handout-driven lessons can lift out or serve as carefully scaffolded core curriculum in classrooms without an economics textbook.
