Right Start in Teaching Economics

Program Format: A four-day residential program which primarily focuses on economic content. Also included will be demonstration lectures, simulations, special topic discussions and readings.

*It is the sole responsibility of the individual teacher to make sure the credit arrangement you pursue meets the criteria set forth by your school, district, and state.  This is a graded course.  Assignment must be completed to receive credits.
