The Mini-Economy program is an experienced based program used to teach concepts of entrepreneurship, economics, and government in a classroom setting. Students immerse themselves in a classroom economy: applying for jobs, running businesses, paying taxes, making investments. This session will provide an overview of this program which enables your students to master essential economics principles while getting cross-curricular exposure to math, reading and writing. On top of invaluable teamwork and negotiation skills, students learn their role in the global marketplace.
The session will also share some classroom resources.
