Saturday, August 14, 2021
12:30pm-3:30pm

Workshop Grades 9–12

We all use money in our daily lives, but few of us actually ponder how and why it works. Jacob Goldstein, cohost of NPR’s Planet Money, has done the heavy lifting for us in his enthralling account, Money: The True Story of a Made-Up Thing. This event will focus on the origin, functions, and potential future of money. Jacob Goldstein will share highlights from his book and economics educators will demonstrate a variety of original classroom activities to help students understand the nature of money.

The co-sponsors of this event – the California Council on Economic Education, the Georgia Council on Economic Education, and the Thomas R. Brown Foundation – will provide attendees with digital instructional resources and a $25 Grubhub credit.

The first 100 registrants receive a complimentary copy of Money: The True Story of a Made-Up Thing.
