Social Studies

Please insert a brief working definition/rationale for this discipline.



Current Events Resources

The Economist is an excellent source of complex coverage of world events from a non-U.S. source

Marketwatch is the Wall Street Journal's free resource. 

The New York Times is a great resource for the social side of economics. 

The website for the radio show Market Place is a great resource.  This show is so cool.  Kids would like it because it's snappy and they play cool music between the segments.
