The Kansas Council on Economic Education, housed at Wichita State University, has been selected to receive one of three national grants designed to offer professional development training for high school economics teachers.
The institute to be funded by the grant, The Right Start in Teaching Economics, will be held at the Tallgrass Country Club in Wichita Jan. 26-29.
Provided by the Davis, Calif.-based Foundation for Teaching Economics, the grant will provide scholarship funding for up to 35 Kansas teachers who either currently teach economics or will, in the future, teach high school economics.
According to Donald Fell, FTE program director, the institute will be taught by a nationally recognized faculty, with the design being to help teachers become more effective in teaching economics by being introduced to a variety of concepts, simulations and classroom activities.
Scholarships, covering lodging, some meals and materials are provided on a first-come basis to qualified teachers, including those who will be completing teaching certification requirements prior to August 2013.
For application information, contact Angela Howdeshell at KCEE at (316) 978-5183 or email@example.com.
The registration deadline is Saturday, Dec. 29.
