You are invited to find new ways to teach economic concepts to elementary students using popular children's books. Attend one session to get information specific to your grade level, or mix and match sessions to get ideas that are applicable across grade levels. Learn how to use new lessons with interactive whiteboard applications from the St. Louis Fed.

Each attendee also will receive:

  • Standards-based, printed curriculum materials that are classroom ready;
  • A children's book for his or her classroom library; and
  • Professional development credit that reflects the number of sessions attended.

Lunch will be provided each day from noon until 12:30 p.m. and complimentary parking will be available. These sessions are free, but registration is required by May 25, 2018.
