I attended this training about 7 years ago, and it was one of the top 5 trainings I have been to. You get to see economics professors teaching rising high school seniors and then discuss how to incorporate the economics ideas into lessons with certified economics teachers. All lunches included. I strongly encourage any teacher who wishes to add more economics into his/her lessons to attend this training!
