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.

Hurricanes, floods, and earthquakes are all life-changing events that encourage us to be planners and creative problem solvers. This session addresses the concepts of scarcity, incentives, opportunity cost, and survival skills using the content in popular children’s books such as A Storm Called Katrina, Blizzard, and Serafina’s Promise. Lesson plans, web resources, and a topical bibliography are included.
