WHAT WE DO:
The Council for Economic Education (CEE) educates young people in the United States and around the world, primarily through well-prepared teachers, so they become empowered with economic and financial literacy.
The CEE provides economic and financial literacy programs and publications, instructional materials and professional development activities.
WHAT WE OFFER:
K-12 Economics and Personal Finance Lessons and Materials
CEE publications and lessons use activities, simulations, multimedia content and background readings to give students an applied, hands-on experience with economics and personal finance principles. Visit http://store.councilforeconed.org for our full product portfolio. In addition, EconEdLink (www.econedlink.org) is CEE’s free source of online economic & personal finance lessons and resources for educators, students and afterschool providers.
Professional Development Workshops
CEE, and its national network of state councils and local centers for economic education, provides free training programs, instructional materials, and state-of-the-art approaches to K-12 economic, personal finance and entrepreneurship education.
Gen i Revolution: Free Online Personal Finance Game
Gen i Revolution is a free online game for middle and high school students that teaches investment and personal finance skills. Students explore key concepts through 15 missions.
Working with mission leader Monique, students undertake 15 missions to fight the "Murktide," an insidious lack of personal finance knowledge that is creeping across the country. Students join the Gen i Revolution, strategically select their operatives, and begin to explore and earn points as they work to complete each mission. (www.genirevolution.org)
WHAT WE NEED:
The CEE promotes economics and financial literacy in the K-12 classroom. We seek partners who can assist the CEE in reaching an increased numbers of teachers and students with critical economic and personal finance education.
