This Institute has moved online.
The Mini-Economy is an experienced-based program used to teach entrepreneurship, economics and government. Students immerse themselves in a classroom economy: applying for jobs, running businesses, paying taxes, making investments. Your students will master essential economics principles while getting cross-curricular exposure to math, reading and writing. On top of invaluable teamwork and negotiation skills, students learn their role in the global marketplace.
Participants will receive a number of engaging, classroom ready lessons and activities for grades 3 through middle school. The institute also identifies performance assessments for grade 3. Teachers will be invited to participate in the 2021 Market Day. Participants who attend the entire institute and successfully pass a test will be acknowledged as VCEE Certified Economic Educator: Mini-Economy.
Upon successful completion of the course, teachers will receive a copy of the Mini-Economy curriculum.
