The so-called "dismal science" may be a difficult subject to teach even at the college level, but one can also imagine that it might be more so in high school. Fortunately, the Annenberg/CPB organization has created this rather useful workshop for teachers working across grades nine through 12 who are teaching economics. The programs are the result of a collaborative effort by Pacific Street Films and the National Council on Economic Education. While teachers could opt to register for the workshops (for which they must pay a fee), they can register on this website (at no charge) and watch the eight workshops on their own home or work computer. Designed primarily for educators with little or no background in economics, the topics cover such material as the global economy, how markets work, and fiscal policy. This nice resource is rounded out by a selection of relevant links to such organizations as the National Council on Economic Education.
