This five-day professional development course, taught by Federal Reserve economic education specialists, covers money, banking, and the Federal Reserve System. It includes grade-level specific breakout sessions aimed at providing teachers with lessons plans that can be implemented right away in their classrooms. The course includes sessions on the history of central banking and a visit to the sites of early central banking, which are part of Independence National Historical Park. Emphasis is placed on active- and collaborative-learning teaching methods and curricula for teaching money and banking in the K–12 classroom. The content covered in this course can be used to meet state and national standards in social studies, economics, and business education as well as the Common Core State Standards. Participants will receive 30 hours of professional development credit (Act 48 in Pennsylvania), breakfast and lunch daily, and all curriculum resources.
