Hands-On Sessions and Valuable Networking Opportunities for K-12 Educators
DALLAS, TX (June 25, 2014) This October, the Council for Economic Education will convene over 500 K-12 educators, industry thought leaders, and local affiliate, Federal Reserve and other partners from across the country for the 53rd Annual Financial and Economic Literacy Conference in Dallas, Texas. With networking events and over 100 hands-on training sessions, teachers can attest to the conference’s invaluable benefits: 96% of 2013 attendees reported that they are still using information or resources they gained at the conference; and 100% of attendees would recommend CEE’s Annual Conference to a colleague. And what’s more, by attending, teachers will earn certificates of completion that may be applied toward CEU requirements.
Annual Conference sessions are designed to help teachers incorporate economic and financial literacy in the classroom, offering an incredible opportunity to share and exchange ideas. A few highlights:
- Using the National Standards to Connect Economics Across the Curriculum
- Economics in Literature – A Common Core Application
- Using Technology to Bridge Concepts Across Economic Curriculum
- Teach Economics and STEM Concepts through Children’s Literature
- Teaching Personal Finance by Color: Engaging Students and Encouraging Self-Evaluation
Additionally, special roundtable sessions led by master teachers offer an opportunity to share best practices at the elementary, middle and high school levels.
This year’s distinguished guest speakers include Richard W. Fisher (invited), President and Chief Executive Officer, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas; Sharon Epperson, CNBC Senior Energy and Personal Finance Correspondent and frequent contributor to Today and NBC Nightly News; and Professor Alan B. Krueger, Bendheim Professor of Economics and Public Affairs at Princeton University. Professor Krueger served as Chairman of President Barack Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers and a Member of his Cabinet from November 2011 to August 2013.
The 53rd Annual Financial and Economic Literacy Conference will be held October 8 – 11 at the Renaissance Dallas Hotel in Dallas, Texas.
