The variable title course is designed for elementary, middle and secondary educators to provide a broad understanding of economic concepts, current economic issues in conjunction with a broad overview of the methods, materials and simulations that can be used to present these concepts to their students. Students will use current pedagogy to increase their own levels of economic understanding and will examine available media and other economic education materials. It is also the intention the course will enhance teachers’ knowledge of economics for not only their professional lives but their personal lives as well. No formal background in economics is assumed of the teachers. However, as a graduate class in economics, educators should expect rigor in the materials presented. Students may retake this course for credit as long as the title is different and they have not taken the course in the past five years.
