Program 1

Capital Markets Contest- Students learn basic information about financial markets, such as the difference between stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, the determination of stock prices, and the influence of economic, social, military, and political events on the markets. They learn to apply economic reasoning to financial decisions. Winners receive cash prizes and a trip to New York. Choices and Changes- Using children?s literature, Choices and Changes emphasizes four major themes: analytical decision making, students as workers, production, and markets. The program includes parent involvement, service learning, and experiential understanding. External evaluation of the program demonstrates improvement in both student understanding of the economy and attitude towards their role in the economy. Economics Challenge- The only national competition for high school economics students, this program promotes interest in economic education, honors high achieving students and showcases outstanding high school economics programs. The Economics Challenge combines the excitement of an athletic competition with the pride of academic excellence. In each competition teams of 3-4 students answer rigorous questions on microeconomics, macroeconomics, and international economics. The most exciting round of the competition is the final round conducted in an oral quiz-bowl format. Financial Fitness for Life- This K-12 program provides lessons at four different grade levels; K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and high school. Each set of materials includes instruction in five areas: economic reasoning, investment in human capital, saving and spending, credit, and money management. Teacher, student, and parent materials are included for each grade level. Workshops are conducted for both teachers and parents. Financial Smarts for Teachers- The purpose of this program is to inform current and future teachers about basic financial topics such as budgeting, buying and owning a home, planning for retirement. CCEE brings this program to credential students and classroom teachers. The information is aimed specifically at teachers and their unique financial issues. Living the American Dream- This program helps students learn some of the basics of buying and owning a home. It is meant to teach students basic economics concepts such as benefit/cost analysis, the operation of product, labor, and credit markets, and the influence of the Federal Reserve Board on credit markets in the context of the housing market. MoneyWiseTeen- This award winning web-based program teaches basic economic concepts in a ?credit? context. Ten animated modules illustrate economic principles through stories that are understandable and relevant to teenagers. The program helps develop the reasoning skills necessary for economic self-reliance. Teacher Guide to CA Economics Standards- To help teachers meet the 1998 Standards, CCEE has developed a handbook comprised of 23 lessons. Content focuses on economic principles, including choice, costs of choices, benefit/cost analysis and the role of profit and competition in a market economy. The new lessons provide usable concepts to guide economics teachers in preparing students to function as adults including roles, responsibilities, opportunities and challenges in the labor market, choosing products and services, saving and investing, and participating intelligently in our democracy. Virtual Economics- This interactive tool helps teachers understand the most important concepts in economics and personal finance and find the right lessons to teach them at each grade level. Search a database of over 1,200 lessons by grade level, concept, Voluntary National Content Standard in Economics or California economics standards. Teachers can view and print the lessons they want.
