What Every Teacher and Student Should Know About the Economy

Whether you are having a hard time bringing the economics standards to life, are confused by the conflicting rhetoric on the news, or simply want to get up to speed with your own economic awareness, these experienced and talented teachers will help their fellow teachers better understand and teach about important and engaging economic issues. The workshop includes several hands-on activities that can be used with students.

•  Who is winning the trade war?

•  Will the debt strangle us?
