Don’t Forget About MPI’s Free Educational Resources This Fall

October 20, 2020

As COVID-19 restrictions continue to affect our daily lives, many parents are again faced with the challenges of homeschooling. For that, MPI is proud to offer FREE educational resources that couple entertaining MPI videos with easy-to-follow lesson plans.

2081, the MPI Original short film adaption of Kurt Vonnegut’s “Harrison Bergeron,” touches on themes of freedom, resistance, equality, and the role of government. Starring Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger), the film is set in a dystopian future where everyone is “equal every which way.” In this stifling world, a “Handicapper General” goes to enormous lengths to punish individualism. The film also stars James Cosmo (Braveheart) and Julie Hagerty (Airplane!). After watching the film, students can explore the complexity of Vonnegut’s classic story by delving into the teacher-approved lesson guides and supplementary classroom videos.

The ten-part MPI Original animated series FI$H: How an Economy Grows brings free market economics to life using humor to tell the story of how three people on an island gradually develop an advanced economy. It breaks down key economic concepts such as capital and risk, comparative advantage, and money. Entertaining, standards-based lecture videos along with lesson plans, homework assignments, and activity worksheets are available to enrich this series.

Intended for middle and high school students, 2081 and FI$H are sure to keep students’ attention and make lesson planning a bit easier for brave, new homeschool parents. Visit and to get started today.
