PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY
July 15 – 21, 2019
$300 Attendance Stipend Available
The Foundation for Teaching Economics (FTE) is pleased to offer this week-long program. In this workshop, high school teachers “go back to school” and are taught by university professors and mentor teachers. What’s unique are the games and simulations: instructors run the activities with real students so the teachers can observe the students’ interactions. The teachers see, up close, why FTE-designed lessons are so effective and leave with a better knowledge of economics, new classroom strategies, and a renewed enthusiasm for teaching.
Program participants meet and stay on the Emory campus. Seminar begins at 4:00 pm on the 15th and ends at 5:00 pm on 20th.
Three semester hours of graduate credit available.
Lodging, meals, and materials will be provided by the Foundation for Teaching Economics. Attending teachers will also receive a $300 stipend.
Curriculum correlated with the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE).
Attendance is open to teachers of economics, history, and social studies, as well as curriculum coordinators and administrators.

The activities that I saw modeled at the FTE conference have completely altered the way I teach economics. Christopher Brown
