Our government is inextricably bound up with our economic system. This is why an understanding of our economic system is an essential part of civic education. While the proper role of government in a primarily market economy is limited, government nonetheless also plays a crucial role that private enterprise cannot fill in areas where markets are inefficient or where due to the nature of the goods and services, markets fail to provide the goods and services that people require and many want.
This session will satisfy the requirements for Modules 5 of the Middle School Civics and Economics Institute which assists CE teachers with all the economic content in Virginia’s Standards of Learning and provides creative lessons and resources. Modules include: Economics is About Making Choices; Why Do We Need an Economic System?; How Our Economy Flows; Markets and Prices; How Does Government Relate to the Economy?; What is Globalization and How Does It Affect Me?; Banks and the Federal Reserve System; and How the Economy Affects You Financially.
Participants completing Modules 1-8 (24 instructional hours in class and six additional hours of assignments outside of class) and passing a test will earn recognition as a VCEE Certified Economics Educator: Civics & Economics. Modules 6 – 8 will be scheduled on the following dates:
