The Ethics, Economics, and Social Issues curriculum from the Council for Economic Education is now complete! You can find these free lesson plans here. In this collection of lessons, students will create and support an argument for or against a sweatshop boycott using primary and secondary sources; consider perspectives related to whether or not businesses have a social responsibility during a simulation, primary source discussion, and creating a marketing pitch for a company’s board of directors; play the roles of doctors and patients, demonstrating the motives of self-interest, duty, and character in economic transactions; learn how their bias impacts their decision-making and research.

Stephen Day will be presenting a couple of the lessons at the Virginia Council for the Social Studies (VCSS) conference. Come to his session, and you’ll take part in engaging discussions and activities on questions such as “What Can We Do About Pollution?” and “Should I Join the Sweatshop Boycott?” and “Is Efficiency Ethical?”
