If you are a seasoned AP economics instructor or are simply contemplating adding an AP economics course to your school’s curriculum, don’t miss this three-day workshop.  Federal Reserve staff and experienced AP instructors will demonstrate engaging economics lessons, interactive online programs, and whiteboard applications developed specifically for AP classes in micro and macro.  Topics for this year’s conference include national income and product accounts, shadow banking, game theory, bonds and more.

The workshop will include whole-group discussions of best practices, course development, and textbook selection.  An “Ask the Expert” panel will delve into those thorny content problems, offering ideas for alternative instructional approaches.

This workshop will feature:

  • 18 hours of professional development
  • Certificates of completion
  • Continental breakfast and lunch
