This webinar demonstrates how popular works of historical fiction, set during the Great Depression, can be used to teach economic concepts such as scarcity, opportunity cost, and economic choice. Featured titles include Dave at Night, Esperanza Rising, Bud, Not Buddy and Out of the Dust. Session includes classroom ready lessons and a topical bibliography.
