The activities that come with the teacher's guide are very helpful for generating interest and discussions before the video is shown. Very good material.

The DVD "A World of Money" helped introduce specific state standards relating to economics in the ancient world. It conveyed concepts in an upbeat modern way keeping my students' attention from beginning to end. I'm anxious to use it with the Common Core Standards in the future.

This video is very good as an introductory film to money. I use it in my economics unit for both 7th and 8th grades, but feel that it could be very in high school economics classes as well.

What a fantastic intro to economics video. I used it to reinforce concepts this year but it will be one of my primary hook videos next year.
