Council for Economic Education logo

WHAT WE DO:
The Council for Economic Education (CEE) is the leading organization in the United States that focuses on the economic and financial education of students from kindergarten through high school—and has been doing so for 65 years. CEE delivers the fourth “R”—a real-world understanding of how to build fruitful lives—to America’s young people.

For 53 years, the CEE Annual Conference has been leading the way in bringing together K–12 educators, CEE affiliates, Federal Reserve partners, and other master trainers to exchange ideas and information in this field. The CEE Annual Conference regularly draws over 500 attendees and features a diverse selection of professional development workshops on economic and financial literacy geared for elementary, middle and high school levels. In addition to the workshops, outstanding speakers address current economic and financial topics to enable educators to bring these perspectives back to their classrooms. The conference also features special roundtable sessions led by master teachers to discuss shared issues and successes, and informal opportunities for networking.

WHAT’S NEW:

The Online Assessment Center, an initiative of the Council for Economic, is a free service for upper-elementary to high school teachers. Through the administration of online tests, teachers can securely measure student knowledge and understanding of economic and personal finance concepts using high-quality assessments.

Math in the Real World brings together the expertise of math teachers and economics teachers to create interdisciplinary lessons that teach important personal finance and economic concepts in the context of math lessons.

This new and revised resource includes 28 engaging lessons which employ an active-learning approach that brings economic concepts to life for students. Included are web-based collaborative activities, interactive worksheets, PowerPoint slides and instructional videos that together create the “go to” resource for any high school economics teacher.
