Curriculum

Teaching Free Enterprise

The Teaching Free Enterprise content collection was developed in partnership with ACRE, Economics Arkansas, and the O’Neil Center for Global Markets and Freedom at Southern Methodist University (SMU.) These topics-based lesson plans and activities are perfect for incorporating into larger social studies units that need more activities or discussion options.

Personal Financial Management

In 2017, the Arkansas state economics standards were updated to incorporate additional personal finance standards into the subject. Modules from this unit provide a guide for how to incorporate these standards into the economics classroom as well as lesson plans, hands-on activities, and discussion prompts to help teachers discuss these ideas with their students.
