PBS Teachers®  has developed Access, Analyze, Act: From Economic Theory to Financial Reality, a special collection of educational digital media resources about the economy for use in school and home learning environments.

Access, Analyze, Act is designed to help high school students develop foundational knowledge of economics through problem solving, analyzing data and opinions, communicating ideas, demonstrating understanding, and acting on what they have learned in authentic ways.

The Web site for the collection features a welcome introduction by PBS NOW's host and senior editor, David Brancaccio, encouraging teachers to make the study of economics a personal story. He also recommends specific resources for teachers to stay informed to meet this educational challenge. The collection features eight lessons plans focused on real-world case studies on four economic topics, with introductions by Michael Mandel, chief economist for BusinessWeek.

Access, Analyze, Act is available for free at http://www.pbs.org/teachers/access-analyze-act-economy/.
