Workshop Description:

Attention: High School Teachers of Economics and Financial Literacy:

The Council for Economic Education, NY, 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.

Telling students to save is one thing, but actually showing them how to save and how their money grows with the magic of compound interest, really grabs their attention. When it comes to knowing when, and how to save, students should be armed with the knowledge and understanding of the benefits that come from paying themselves first. Having the discipline to save has been compared to having the discipline that comes with other healthy habits such as eating well and exercising. Using a lesson from the Learning, Earning, and Investing publication along with an activity from the University of Arizona Take Charge Personal Finance curriculum, students will learn the power of compound interest through a hands on activity to simulate the growth of savings and the difference between savings accounts and their savings options at a young age.

Presenter: Andrea Caceres-Santamaria
