Our Principles of Economics (Mateer and Coppock, 2020) textbook is now in its third edition. Like other textbook authors, the publication cycle drives our content decisions and makes the real-time treatment of emerging issues and fresh content impossible to incorporate in most cases. However, the immense changes brought about by the global pandemic are so significant that we began work on a special edition of our textbook in March 2020. This special edition will be available in the summer of 2021. In the interim, we have prepared eight COVID-19 modules as plug-ins for any principles course.

This note briefly explains the eight modules and includes one image from each module to make the content more relatable. The modules can be downloaded through the Journal of Economics Teaching website. It is our hope the profession will benefit from these teaching resources.
