Foundation for Teaching Economics

This nonprofit foundation was founded in 1975 with a mission to "promote excellence in economic education by helping economics teachers become more effective educators" and "to introduce young individuals, selected for their leadership potential, to an economic way of thinking about national and international issues." The site provides over fifty lesson plans; profiles of workshops, internships and training sessions; annual awards given by the Foundation for Teaching Economics; and a resource area for both students and teachers, including national standards on economic education, teaching economics on the internet, an alumni bulletin board, consumer price indexes, and current issues in economics.
