Economics for Leaders Program
Economics for Leaders (EFL) represents a unique experience in economics education that brings together teachers looking to improve their teaching skills in economics. The EFL one-week program is rigorous and encompasses 50+ hours of instruction.
The goal of each EFL program is to provide teachers with lesson plans of simulations and activities, economics content instruction, and a networking opportunity with other teaching professionals. The combination of classroom instruction, question and answer sessions, small group discussion and workshops presents information in a rich and varied format, encouraging active participation. Economics professors, who have been selected from across the nation for their expertise, along with skilled mentor teachers, provide content instruction and run simulations and activities that are designed to illustrate economic principles. Both new and experienced teachers will benefit from attending this program.
A feature of EFL that past participants have found especially useful is the demonstrations: the EFL staff model the activities and simulations with high school students. Attending teachers gain direct experience with the lesson plans before they leave at the end of the week.
Learning has never been so easy, rewarding, or inexpensive!
Three semester hours of graduate credit in economics are available for $306 through the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs
