Workshop Description: High School Teachers:

Presenter: Katrina Babb, Assistant Director, Center for Economic Education and Instructor of Economics, Indiana State University

What determines if a job is essential? Why are so many essential workers paid minimum wage? Should medical professionals be expected to work without appropriate PPE? Would sacrificial be a more accurate adjective than essential? In addition to exploring those pressing questions, we will apply core curriculum economic concepts such as supply and demand, elasticity, factor markets, and government intervention. You will click away from this interactive session with ready-to-use lessons.

There is no charge for High School Teachers to participate in the Health Economics Institute. All sessions will be held online daily from July 6 through July 17. See agenda for details at: http://www.econed-in.org/HealthEconInstitute.asp. Register for as many sessions as you like or all sessions!

Participants may earn 1 point for each session. High school teachers who teach or integrate economics into their classrooms will:

Review and reinforce an understanding of economic concepts identified in the Economics Standards. Share best teaching practices relating these concepts to current health economic micro, macro and public policy issues.
