A history class used data on babysitting wages and movie ticket prices to study inflation. A Spanish class learned about supply and demand by recreating a South American marketplace.

Those are some of the ways teachers put into practice what they learned and developed at this workshop. Experts in economics and economic education help high school teachers—of math, English, foreign language, history, government, and geography—better understand macroeconomic content and find ways to make learning it fun.

The American Institute for Economic Research (AIER), Econ Illinois and the St. Louis Fed offer the program, which has content aligned to national standards and the latest teaching methods.

When you complete all three days of the program and online work, you will leave with:

  • A binder with all workshop materials, including the demonstrated lesson plans and additional ideas;
  • A critiqued lesson plan idea you can use in your classroom;
  • A certificate for 45 hours of CEUs/CPDUs provided free from the St. Louis Fed; and
  • An opportunity to earn a $500 stipend provided by AIER for field-testing your lesson idea in your classroom during the fall/winter semester.

Breakfast, lunch, and validated parking will be provided each day.
