Economics Education for K-12 Teachers

Making the Arizona economics standards accessible and fun to teach.

Economic Education for K-12 Teachers

  

Make every day in the classroom a meaningful one.

   

With our hands-on training, you’ll learn new strategies for bringing the Arizona economics standards to life for your students. Through a variety of virtual and in-person professional development opportunities, an immersive summer institute, and a collection of at-the-ready resources, the Office of Economic Education provides everything you need to give your students the very best education.

The class was intellectually stimulating, full of learning and fun, all at the same time. The instructors were exceptional, very knowledgeable and helpful as teachers of teachers.
