Economic Forces in American History is a cross-curricular program designed to help history teachers incorporate an economic way of thinking into their American history courses. The lessons are designed to develop the tools of economic reasoning in the context of specific historical periods and broad historical themes, encouraging students to learn by 'reliving' history rather than just reading or hearing about it.
