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 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
  • Andrew T. Hill, Ph.D., economic education advisor, Philadelphia Fed

Participants will be given copies of all demonstrated lessons and a resource list of additional lessons that are available online. A certificate for CEU/CPDU hours will be available.

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

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