Students need a balanced understanding of the foundations of government and the limited but crucial role government plays in supporting our economic system. Moreover, economics at its heart is about decision making: making choices about the best use of our limited resources. As students head into high school, they must develop their ability to make good decisions about saving and spending, about staying in school, and about the ways in which their present choices impact their future options.

This session will assist CE teachers with some of the economic content in Virginia’s Standards of Learning and provide creative classroom ready lessons and resources.


Additional Information:

Time will be allotted for lunch, so please, bring a meal or plan to purchase one from the deli within the complex. Also, there is a charge for parking.
