"If ignorance paid dividends, most Americans could make a fortune out of what they don't know about economics." So says the U.S. Secretary of Commerce, Luther H. Hodges. This site from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) seeks to transform that ignorance into understanding. Features include Student Interactives, Lessons, and Online Exhibitions & Facts. The Student Interactives and Lesson Plans sections are segmented for specific age groups, from the fifth grade through the end of college. Educators will want to start with the Teacher Guide accompanying each feature. For instance, the guide to the Money Mania interactive provides a background and teaching tips for social studies teachers working with students from grades nine through twelve. Links reach out into nearly limitless resources available on the IMF web page.
