Workshop Description: High School Teachers:

Join Inside INdiana Business’ Gerry Dick and your fellow high school teachers for the first installment in our new Economics on Tap Series, where teachers are invited to a local brewing company for a roundtable discussion of today’s hot economic and business issues. Our goal is to provide high school teachers with creative ideas and easily integrated tools for teaching current events around economics and business and to make these subjects relevant for students!

This first in the series, “Front Page Economics: Teaching the News,” will bring together Indiana high school economics, social studies, and business teachers with a business reporter to discuss:

  • how business reporters identify the next big business or economics story
  • the sources of information business reporters use that are available to teachers/students
  • what 2 or 3 significant issues/drivers of the central Indiana economy can we expect in 2018?

Gerry Dick is the award winning host and creator of Inside INdiana Business television and is recognized across the state as a business leader and a respected business journalist. Following Gerry’s discussion will be an Indiana high school teacher who will provide classroom-tested strategies and inside tips for engaging students and teaching current news events!

There is NO REGISTRATION FEE plus dinner will be provided! Participants will also receive PGP points, lots of useful information, and a view of Sun King’s small batch brewing system!

Don’t miss out! Space is limited to the first 15 teachers. Reserve your spot TODAY by emailing Terri L. Crews, Program Coordinator, IUPUI Center for Economic Education, tcrews@iupui.edu, or call 317-274-8100.
