Monday, May 5, 2014
5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Registration Deadline: Wednesday, April 30, 2014
Registration Fee: $10

This one-evening professional development program introduces grades K-5 teachers to three new lessons for teaching students about money, wants, choices, and language arts using Stan and Jan Berenstain's widely popular children's books. Taught by Federal Reserve economic education specialists, the content covered in this program can be used to meet state and national standards in language arts, social studies, economics, and family and consumer sciences as well as the Common Core State Standards. Participants will receive 2.5 hours of professional development credit (Act 48 in Pennsylvania), dinner, and all curriculum resources.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia’s economic teachers offer one-day, three-evening, and week-long professional development programs aimed at equipping K-12 teachers to better teach about economics and personal finance in their own classrooms. Teachers receive professional development credit in their respective states. Registration through this website is required.
