What do we tell our students about the most recent financial crisis and economic downturn that continue to impact our state and national economies? EconomicsWisconsin and the UW-Parkside Center for Economic Education are hosting a full-day workshop entitled Teaching Financial Crises, based on a curriculum by the same title recently published by the Council for Economic Education.
The curriculum, Teaching Financial Crises, is appropriate for middle and high school teachers of social studies, U.S. history, economics, and business. It contains eight complete lessons that provide an organized framework in which to contextualize all of the media attention that has been paid to the recent financial crisis, as well as put it in a historical context.
Registration cost is $25.00 and includes lunch, curriculum and access to the presentations.. This workshop will be led by Dr. Norm Cloutier, Center Director for Economic Education, Uw-Parkside. Registration is limited to 25.
