CEE National Standards Video-Mapping

The Council for Economic Education (CEE)'s Voluntary National Content Standards in Economics are the most thorough and popularly adopted national standards for high school economics. The twenty standards cover everything that is typically taught in a year-long high school economics course.

Here we've mapped videos from Marginal Revolution University's Principles of Micro, Principles of Macro, and Everyday Economics courses to those standards. Below are our best videos at the high school level. You can show them in class or assign them for homework — don't forget they all come with practice questions!

You can view the video mapping as a Google Doc or download as a PDF.
