Middle and High School Teachers! With the 2020 political campaigns in full swing, students need to be able to think critically about national economic issues. This workshop will give you all the up-to-date, inquiry-based lessons that you need. Lessons will focus on elections; government institutions, programs, and economic systems. Includes a special presentation on income inequality from expert Dr. Adam Blandin. Students will become informed citizens as they consider the tradeoffs involved in setting public policy. They will learn to articulate their own views by evaluating primary and secondary sources and engaging in group activities and discussions.
Free parking, breakfast, lunch, and lesson plans for all attendees!
Teachers from Title 1-eligible schools receive a $50 stipend for attending.
This workshop and the accompanying materials are made available to teachers through the generous support of the Peter G. Peterson Foundation and the Council for Economic Education.
