Workshop Description: The Council for Economic Education is pleased to offer free professional development webinars for teachers nationwide. The webinars cover multiple topics on how to integrate personal finance and economics in the classroom and create a fun learning experience for your students.

Cli-Fi, the “hottest” new literature genre, portrays humans dealing with extreme weather situations. Discover how dire events, such as rising water, extreme heat, and freezing temperatures, are perfect situations for teaching scarcity, allocation of limited resources, and decision making. Featured titles include, Life as We Knew It, The Maze Runner, and Ninth Ward. Webinar attendees will receive links to classroom-ready lessons and a topical bibliography.
