How can teachers learn strategies for the STAARs while enjoying their own educational experiences? The answer is through the Eco Extra Conference: The Lone STAAR State in a Global Economy which involves hands-on learning experiences at Austin’s The Story of Texas Museum.
Texas has a rich economic history that is captured in The Story of Texas: The Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum. TCEE conference speakers will discuss the current state of Texas economics as well explore the museum’s historical artifacts that portray Texas’s role as king of cotton and oil. Both the museum staff and TCEE university center directors will provide lessons that teach about the economics of Texas both past and present. Discussions will connect the Texas economy to that of the U.S. and the world. Teachers will learn how to teach the new K to 8 math Personal Financial Literacy (PFL) TEKS as well as the senior economics student expectation on how to prepare financially for college. Sessions will include how to teach the Stock Market Game™ simulation. There is something for all educators who work with grade 4 to 12 students.
