Workshop Description:

Attention: Teachers:

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.

It is said that the financial crisis of 2008 shared similar characteristics to previous economic crises. However, to the surprise of many was the fact that the roots of the 2008 crisis stemmed from what was traditionally seen as a solid investment market; American housing. This webinar will examine the rapid growth of the U.S. housing market between 2000 - 2008. Attendees will learn of the rise of home ownership, residential construction, sub-prime lending, as well as the relationship forged between main street commercial banks and Wall Street investment banks. Content and Teacher Resources will be made available to all attendees.

Presenter: Kevin Morgan teaches Financial Literacy at Marlboro High School (NJ). Additionally, he teaches 12th Grade Economics at a district run alternative school, the RAISE Academy. In 2017, Kevin joined the Council for Economic Education Master Teacher Program in which he facilitates teacher professional development workshops on behalf of the Council for Economic Education in New York, and the New Jersey Council for Economic Education.

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. You must attend a live webinar or listen to a recorded webinar for at least 45 minutes in order to receive a certificate.
