Draft Agenda

Conference Speakers and Bios

Are you a seasoned AP economics instructor, new to teaching the courses, or simply contemplating teaching them? If so, join us as Federal Reserve economists, AP economics exam readers and instructors, and St. Louis Fed economic education staff present a program packed with the information you need to be successful. 

All teachers also are invited to a pre-conference session on how teaching economics and practicing the skills needed to be successful on the SAT can be integrated in the classroom. New teachers or those who are exploring the possibility of teaching AP economics are welcome to attend a pre-conference workshop and dinner that will include information on the basics, such as designing the syllabus and choosing a textbook. Experienced teachers will be on hand to offer strategies for a successful launch.

The conference will feature:

  • 18 hours of professional development credit;
  • certificates of completion; and
  • continental breakfast, lunch and a Wednesday evening reception.

There is no fee, but you must register by June 8, 2017. Parking is complimentary.
