WHY NOT COMBINE AN EXCITING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

OPPORTUNITY WITH A VISIT TO THE EMERALD CITY!

Teachers – don’t miss your chance to go to Seattle, WA this summer AND attend a seminar that will improve your teaching! Economics for Leaders (EFL) will be in Seattle from July 7 – 12 at the University of Washington!

In this week-long program, 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.  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 teacher.
