In the Spotlight

Pop culture is a great way to engage your students. To help economic educators incorporate more of it into the classroom the Atlanta Fed has been offering teacher professional development workshops using movies. We tie the economic and personal finance concepts that occur in the movies to classroom-ready lessons and activities. Movies we’ve used include Confessions of a Shopaholic, The Pursuit of Happyness, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and Cinderella Man. To round out the events, the workshops include dinner—so make an evening of it!

For more information about programs, go to the Atlanta Fed’s econ ed events page. And if you have movies with supporting activities that you use in your classroom, we would love to hear about them. E-mail your ideas to Julie Kornegay at julie.l.kornegay@atl.frb.org.
