Are you a seasoned AP economics instructor? Have you thought about teaching AP economics? Is your school or district interested in adding AP economics courses to its curricula?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, please join us for a two-day workshop at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. Federal Reserve staff and experienced AP instructors will demonstrate engaging economics lessons and introduce interactive whiteboard applications developed specifically for AP classes in micro and macro.

The workshop will include whole-group discussions of best practices, course development, and textbook selection. An “Ask the Expert” panel will delve into those thorny content problems, offering ideas for alternative instructional approaches.

Participants receive:

  • 12 hours of professional development
  • certificates of completion
  • continental breakfast and lunch both days

The workshop is free, but registration is required.
