Our Econ After Hours Series is BACK! Join us at O’Neill’s Grill for appetizers and a chance to network with other teachers while hearing from content experts!

This Econ After Hours program will introduce teachers to a supplemental textbook they can use for their U.S. History course, Economic Episodes in American History. This innovative textbook supplement will enrich and expand your students’ understanding of U.S. history and the role economics has played in shaping the American story. We will be joined by one of the co-authors Dr. William Wood. We will also hear from local history expert Beau Dickenson on the life of Lucy Simms.

The JMU Center for Economic Education will provide appetizers!
