U.S. History Through an Economic Lens

Houston, June 21–22, 2012
Austin, July 30–31, 2012
Dallas, August 2–3, 2012

This new two-day workshop examined economic concepts integral to the high school U.S. history course.

Patterned after the successful Economics Boot Camp, this workshop allowed participants to examine important economic concepts and learn creative ways to integrate them into classroom instruction. By looking at the U.S. history course from an economic perspective, students can examine the economic incentives that motivated decisionmaking through the years. Session content was directly correlated to the economics strand of the 11th grade U.S. history TEKS and organized into four time periods.

  • 1870s to 1920
  • Post World War II
  • Between the Wars
  • 21st Century
