F.A.S.T. Start Economics Workshop
F (Foundational) A (Applications) for S (Secondary) T (Teachers) Start: Business Economics is a workshop (June 8 - 9, 2011) designed to help Kansas teachers prepare for the new Business Economics course (12105) required in all business pathways. Entrepreneurship instructors will be available to provide pedagogy guidance and to answer any questions related to Entrepreneurship. This workshop is offered at NO COST to Kansas teachers thanks to sponsorship from the Fred C. and Mary R. Koch Foundation in partnership with the Kansas State Department of Education, Youth Entrepreneurs of Kansas, the six Kansas Centers for Economic Education and the Kansas Council on Economic Education. Teachers will walk away with many resources to help teach this course.
Join us this summer at one of the six of the Kansas Regents Universities: ESU, FHSU, KSU, KU, PSU & WSU. Speakers will be broadcast to all locations.
There is no cost for teachers to attend this conference. Continental breakfast and lunch are provided both days. Teachers will also receive FREE educational resources. Housing and transportation will not be provided. This workshop requires a $25 refundable deposit that will be returned to you uncashed at the end of the workshop as long as you attend all sessions. It is just to hold your space. Spaces are limited. Partial scholarships for graduate credit are available. See graduate credit section below.
