Reviews and Awards


Florida Council on Economic Education
October 1987

"For the past year the Florida Council on Economic Education network has been using the Economics U$A series in its teaching training offerings. Teacher response to the series has been overwhelmingly positive."

"We have been delighted with the success we have achieved with the series, and I commend the Annenberg/CPB Project for developing and offering such a high quality, educationally sound film series."

Marlboro Herald-Advocate, Bennetsville, SC
April 1990

"Marlboro County High School students use Economics U$A to study college-level economics, via Satellite Educational Resources Consortium. 'We know names and voices,' said one student. 'If the teacher goes too fast, we normally ask each other questions.'

'It's interesting to see how college courses are going to be' said another student."

Reston Times, Reston, VA
February 1989

"Economics U$A examines major historic and contemporary events that have shaped 20th century American economics. Through the use of interviews, commentary and analysis, this series established a clear relationship between abstract economic principles and concrete human experiences."
