This session covers Module 3 focusing on supply and demand and why an understanding of these concepts contribute to informed decision-making as consumers, producers, savers, investors, employees and citizens. This module will provide creative lessons to help your students understand these dynamics.

Module 4 concentrates on trade, the voluntary exchange of goods and services. Learn how trade leads to a broader range of goods and services, increases the productivity of labor, and influences globalization.  Comparative advantage, exchange rates, and trade restrictions will also be discussed.

While particularly helpful for those teaching economics and personal finance, any teacher wanting to deepen their economic knowledge will find the institute beneficial.

This is the second of four sessions designed  to cover all of the economic concepts in the high school economics and personal finance course.  Participants who successfully complete all six modules (42 hours) and pass a post-test will be recognized as a VCEE Certified Economics Educator: High School.   See the upcoming sessions listed below.
