Students participate in an investment simulation that allows them to develop and manage a hypothetical $100,000 investment portfolio, as well as compete for the best portfolio performance. This program is easily integrated into a variety of subject areas, including social studies, mathematics, and language art classes. If you have any questions please call us at 1-800-707-4247.

Program 3

Teacher Workshops

In 1975 Florida became the tenth state to require economic education. By 1983 a one-semester economics course offered at high school level was mandated by the legislature. This singular course requirement provided the catalyst for economics programs, training, and cross-curricula programming. The Florida Council on Economic Education and its University partners are committed to helping teachers make each and every economics class a success.
