Fueled in large part by technological innovations, we live in an increasingly global economy.  As globalization increases and nations’ economies grow more integrated, there are costs and benefits. Trade gives consumers greater variety in what they consume. In the US for example, without trade we would have to give up coffee, chocolate, many spices, and imported oil.  Globalization also presents challenges for some individuals as jobs and industries which were once prominent in this country are moved to other countries or eliminated through greater technology. Companies face greater competition from products and services produced less expensively in other countries.

This session will satisfy the requirements for Module 6 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 7 – 8 are scheduled for Thursday, February 1, 2018. 

Dinner will be provided.
