Registration Information

A history class used data on babysitting wages and movie ticket prices to study inflation. A Spanish class learned about supply and demand by recreating a South American marketplace.

Those are some of the ways teachers put into practice what they learned and developed at this workshop. Experts in economics and economic education help high school teachers—of math, English, foreign language, history, government, and geography—better understand macroeconomic content and find ways to make learning it fun.

The American Institute for Economic Research (AIER) and the Nebraska Council on Economic Education together with the UNO Center for Economic Education sponsors the program. Content is aligned to national standards and the latest teaching methods.
