Free lesson plans in high school U.S. History and Economics, with readings, activites and performance objectives, at www.landandfreedom.org. All resources are formatted for easy printing and use. They are designed to supplement existing curricula, focusing on the role of land in history, economics, politics and ecology.
Our U.S. History series covers topics such as The Declaration and Natural Rights, The Panic of 1837, The Mexican Cessions, the Railroad Land Grants, Imperialism in Central America, Roosevelt and the New Deal, and 15 more.
Our 20-lesson series in Economics features lessons on Economic Systems, Class Struggle, and hard-to-enliven microeconomic notions such as margins and types of competition.
Each series includes a list of "further investigations" -- selected online resources for each lesson topic.
We also present, twice a month, a selected news article, keyed to our lessons, with study questions provided.
Please have a look, and tell us what you think, on the site's discussion forum.
