The Mini-Economy is an experienced-based program used to teach entrepreneurship, economics and government in elementary classes. 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. Students learn skills in online banking.
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. The course will demonstrate how to carry out a market day for students online. Participants who attend the entire institute and successfully pass a test will be acknowledged as VCEE Certified Economic Educator: Mini-Economy.
The course will run mostly asynchronously, with Zoom meetings on the dates listed below.
Upon successful completion of the course, teachers will receive a copy of the Mini-Economy curriculum.
