Teacher Workshops

 

These day-long programs provide you with the tools you need to teach economics in the classroom. At each workshop, you’ll see presentations by economics experts, actively participate in classroom activities, and take home a wealth of resources, including detailed lesson plans, activity outlines, and readings. Our teacher workshops are held multiple times a year in cities across Canada.
