Introducing the Classroom Economist
The economic education team of the Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank has developed a new online resource for teachers. Each quarter, beginning with first quarter 2011, the Classroom Economist will present information on selected economic topics for teachers to use in the classroom with their students or for professional development. The site offers video and PowerPoint content created to clarify and enhance teachers' understanding of a core economic or Federal Reserve topic selected from the Atlanta Fed's popular "Insights from Inside the Federal Reserve" or "Personal Finance" workshops. Lesson demonstrations and resource ideas will help teachers bring these topics to life in the classroom.
The Classroom Economist features inflation in its inaugural module.
Check back quarterly on our website for new content.
