29 Trillion and Counting: Making Sense of the Federal Budget, Debt & Deficits
FTE has a new curriculum unit to help you teach about the federal budget, debt and deficits. With the economic way of thinking as a framework, an examination of the issues in light of the incentives, costs, and benefits facing decision-makers will be presented. Teachers who attend this One Day seminar will be able to help their students answer these questions:
What is the national debt?
Where does the money come from and where does it go?
How does the federal government borrow money?
Is government spending sustainable?
Whether you’re teaching in a traditional or virtual classroom, these engaging and interactive lessons will give your students the tools they need to make sense of the federal budget, debt and deficits.
