This special program includes participation in a one-hour teacher town hall meeting with Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke via videoconference. Taught by Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia economic education specialists, this program is offered as part of the nationwide “100 Years of the Federal Reserve” project in commemoration of the Fed’s centennial. The content covered in this program can be used to meet state and national standards in social studies, economics, and business education as well as the Common Core State Standards. Participants will receive 2.5 hours of professional development credit (Act 48 in Pennsylvania), dinner, and 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.
