The Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) will broadcast an interactive videoconference workshop on Economics and the newly revised Social Studies Framework on Wednesday, June 13, 2007. This workshop is a collaborative effort between the ADE and the Arkansas Council on Economic Education. This highly interactive workshop will provide new and innovative ways to meet the K-8 economic requirements of the revised Arkansas Social Studies Framework. Award-winning economic educators will demonstrate hands-on activities for use in the K-8 classroom. Participants will learn about a variety of resources, lessons, and activities available to teachers for use in the instruction of economics. In addition, participants will create lessons and activities for use in the classroom.
