With the 2020 political campaigns in full swing, this workshop will help you teach students how to think critically about elections and public policy. Lessons will focus on voters and elections; government institutions, programs, marginal error, and public choice.  Students will become informed citizens as they consider the tradeoffs involved in setting public policy. They will learn to articulate their own views by evaluating primary and secondary sources and engaging in group activities and discussions.

Free parking, breakfast, lunch, and lesson plans for all attendees!

Teachers from Title 1-eligible schools receive a $50 stipend for attending.

This workshop and the accompanying materials are made available to teachers through the generous support of the Peter G. Peterson Foundation and the Council for Economic Education.


Fee: NO CHARGE
