Workshop Description: The Council for Economic Education is pleased to offer free professional development webinars for teachers nationwide. The webinars cover multiple topics on how to integrate personal finance and economics in the classroom and create a fun learning experience for your students.

When you attend the webinar(s), you will leave with relevant lessons, resources and tools that can be implemented the next day. If you are interested, but cannot attend the live webinar, please register to get access to the archived version.

Relating economic concepts to what middle and high school students are reading will increase understanding and engagement. Learn how economic concepts such as scarcity, choices, productive resources, and economic systems are interwoven into the challenges characters such as Frodo Baggins and Katniss Everdeen encounter as they face life-defining decisions and overcome adversity. Lessons, web resources, and a topical bibliography are included.
