The Kansas Council on Economic Education, housed at Wichita State University, has been selected to receive one of three national grants designed to offer professional development training for high school economics teachers, the university said in a news release.
The institute to be funded by the grant, “The Right Start in Teaching Economics,” will be held at the Tallgrass Country Club in Wichita Jan. 26-29.
The grant will provide scholarship money for up to 35 Kansas teachers who either currently teach economics or will, in the future, teach high school economics.
According to Donald Fell, FTE program director, the institute will be taught by a nationally recognized faculty, with the design being to help teachers become more effective in teaching economics by being introduced to a variety of concepts, simulations and classroom activities.
For application information, contact Angela Howdeshell at KCEE at 316-978-5183 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The registration deadline is Saturday, Dec. 29.
