Teaching About Investing Workshop – FREE!

Teaching About Investing—You Don’t Have to Be Jim Cramer! 

Investing is the topic in Washington’s new financial standards that people are the most nervous about teaching. We watch financial analysts on tv, measure our knowledge against theirs, and then minimize or skip this unit entirely. Join us on Jan. 31, 2018 to vanquish these fears forever. We will explore a sample curriculum unit using lessons from the Council for Economic Education, the Delaware Council on Economic Education, the Federal Reserve Banks and the Stock Market Game. We will provide everything you will need (except your laptop or tablet), but you are, of course, welcome to bring any materials that you love to use to share with the group.
