About the Event
Beyond the Basics offers teachers the opportunity to delve into advanced economics topics in a fun, simple, yet thorough way. Through the implementation of a variety of activities, resources, and assignments, learn how intricate economics terms, that usually confuse students, can become familiar topics. This workshop allows experienced and new teachers to explore innovative ways of teaching economic topics such as elasticity, externalities, exchange rates, fiscal policy, and price stability.
Using advanced economics principles, Kim Holder will introduce new and exciting ways to teach economics to Gen-Z. Teachers will learn how to use innovative technology in the classroom, taking advantage of social media, edutainment and even *selfies* to illustrate economic concepts and their real life applications. This workshop equips teachers with interactive and technology focused tools to apply in their 21st century classroom.
