A classroom mini-economy is an exciting, real-world way to teach various subjects in elementary grades. Many Virginia teachers use mini-economies, and even participate in university- or district-based Market Days. This workshop will help you get even more out of your mini-economy. The VCU Center for Economic Education, in partnership with teachers in the Richmond region, has assembled some great new resources for teaching economics, math, and English while using a mini-economy. Furthermore, they have created tools for using the mini-economy as an alternative assessment of student learning–a great way to comply with state requirements for alternative assessments in Grade 3.
The focus of this workshop is not to show you how to begin a mini-economy for the first time. For that, you will want to sign up for one of our summer institutes. This workshop is to help teachers use their mini-economies to address the school curriculum in fun and rigorous ways. All teachers are welcome.
Parking and a working dinner (pizza) will be provided.
Fee: NO CHARGE
