Economics has played a pivotal role in modern world history.  In this workshop teachers will discuss: the impact of the Columbian Exchange on trade and interdependence; the rise and fall of communism; and the impact of the Industrial Revolution and more.  Economics helps to explain “why” events occurred. Don’t miss this opportunity to gain valuable resources for integrating economics into your world history classes!
