The Nashville Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta and the Middle Tennessee State University Center for Economic Education are committed to providing quality learning opportunities for educators. This summit, which builds on the concepts covered during the fall 2013 webinar series, is designed to help current and future teachers of economics become more effective teachers of the high school economics course. The summit will focus on increasing content knowledge, going more in-depth into understanding each topic, demonstrating lessons, and sharing resources related to the topic. Additionally, the economic content will help educators prepare for the economics Praxis exam.
Concepts the workshop will cover include money, monetary policy, fractional reserve banking, and the money multiplier at a more advanced level. During the summit, educators will have the opportunity to use technology and to share classroom best practices. Participants are encouraged to bring their own devices.
The program is conducted in partnership between the Nashville Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta and Middle Tennessee State University Center for Economic Education.
Space is limited and registration will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
