What Every Teacher and Student Should Know About the Economy
February 23, 2019 - Aspen Academy , Greenwood Village
An in-service workshop for teachers, schools and school districts
Whether you are having a hard time bringing the economics standards to life, are confused by the conflicting rhetoric in 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 important and engaging economic issues. The workshop includes several hands-on activities that can be used with students on questions such as:
| Who is winning the trade war?|| Is inequality bad for America?|
| Are immigrants taking our jobs?|| China overtake the U.S.?|
| Will the debt strangle us?|| How is the economy doing?|
Finally, remember that this class will not have college credit available – just the CDE letter – and will be held at Aspen Academy.
