In addition, participants will engage in interactive lesson demonstrations and will receive lesson plans and other teaching resources to apply conference content in the classroom.
  • Day two will feature additional Federal Reserve economists, lesson applications, and a collaborative videoconference among the Federal Reserve banks of Atlanta, Boston, Cleveland, Dallas, Kansas City, and St. Louis. Don't miss the opportunity to exchange views with colleagues across the nation.
