From Alexander Hamilton’s First Bank through the Great Recession, economic forces have played a vital role in U.S. history. Join us to hear from experts, work with primary source documents, collaborate with fellow educators and participate in demonstrations of lessons that you can take back to your classrooms.

The Federal Reserve Banks of Atlanta, Dallas, Philadelphia and St. Louis offer this program, which has content aligned to national standards and the latest teaching methods.

The following experts will speak live at one of the Banks and via video conference to the others: 

  • Charles Flanagan, Ph.D., outreach supervisor, Center for Legislative Archives, National Archives and Records Administration
  • David Wheelock, Ph.D., vice president and deputy director of research, St. Louis Fed

We will be guided on a historic walking tour of downtown Louisville by Dr. Tom Owens of the University of Louisville. Participants must be comfortable walking for at least 90 minutes. 

Participants will be given copies of all demonstrated lessons and a resource list of additional lessons that are available online. A certificate for 12 hours of professional development credit will be available. Note: this workshop is pre-approved by JCPS (PD Code 17-1883803), but you must still register with us. 

There is no fee, but you must register by Wednesday, June 21.

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