All of our Professional Development programs deliver economics and personal finance content and resources for teachers K-12. Each course will integrate one of the following standards: Strengthening Math, Strengthening Reading and Language Arts, while Strengthening Social Studies. We will explore ways to design student learning objectives (SLO's), identify effective teaching resources and strategies, and provide rubrics to be used in pre and post assessment of students. The theme this year is "Plan it. Teach it. Measure it.".




One new course we are offering is called What's the Big Idea? It focuses on the changes happening in the new Ohio Learning Standards, especially for social studies for grades 4-8. 



What a better way to kick off the new school year than with great new teaching resources to make your life easier? Join us to learn about materials that will make your job easier, see our professional development opportunities, and how you can better plan, teach, and measure your instruction and student learning. We will focus on student learning objectives and helping you with assessment.

  • Each participant will take home a copy of "Virtual Economics", a collection of 79 instructional guides and over 1,500 lessons.  
  • Get new online resources, such as "Gen i Revolution," Federal Reserve System materials, and much much more! 
  • Share creative ideas with your colleagues. 

This workshop is one way to celebrate the new school year! UC Graduate credit is available at a discount and LPDC certificates will be provided.
