Teaching High School Economics

July 29, 2019 to August 1, 2019

Teaching High School Economics

Grades 9-12 | 8:00am-4:00pm | University of Minnesota, St. Paul Campus

“My comfort and confidence level of teaching economics went from low to high in just one week. The instructors provided an authentic learning environment that I know I can replicate in my classroom. On top of that, I have a TON of lesson ideas and resources to share with my peer teachers that can be used to enrich our students' learning experience."

MCEE's Teaching High School Economics course is a must for any teacher new to economics or for those looking to expand their understanding of the state standards! This four-day course helps prepare teachers and builds confidence in those with little background. Providing a solid introduction to the high school MN academic standards in economics, the course will split its focus between teaching macroeconomics and microeconomics to prepare teachers for delivering high-quality lessons in a variety of economic topics.

Teachers will leave the course with not only a stronger understanding of economics but also with the tools to teach these concepts to your students.
