Economic Forces in American History

The Economic Forces in American History (EFIAH) One Day Seminar offers teachers a condensed version of our weeklong course. Teachers will gain knowledge on the economic forces behind some of the most influential events in American history and what they can teach us about the economic decisions confronting the U.S. today. In this One Day EFIAH session, teachers of economics, U.S. history, social studies, and civics/government will have the opportunity to discover valuable activities that can be integrated into their own classroom.

One Day Seminars qualify for one graduate hour credit in economics from the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs for an additional fee.
