The Economics of Colorado

Saturday, January 30, 2016 in Denver

Back by popular demand. We want to help teachers develop an ever more sophisticated understanding of our state and its economy. What has attracted over five million people to call Colorado home? Is it more than the mountains, the climate, high tech industry, ranching, farming, tourism, resource extraction and the marijuana business? Get up to speed on what’s happening in your home state. Share it with your students and wow your out-of-state guests with your knowledge about the state we call home to the Rockies, the Broncos, the Avalanche, the Nuggets and the Rapids.

REGISTRATION GUIDELINES: We try to identify the best fit for our open enrollment classes, usually by the kinds of resources and pedagogy included in the class. However, it is our STRONG belief that the content from any of these classes is valuable for the professional development of any teacher. And though we won’t have any lesson plans specifically designed for elementary teachers in our classes designated for secondary teachers, we are confident that these classes will enhance the understanding of ALL teachers and inspire some creative applications in their individual classrooms. Hence, we encourage teachers of all grade levels to attend any of our classes. Additionally, we will be holding 3 spots in every one-day open enrollment class for retired teachers and the general community for those wishing to expand their economic knowledge.

 “FREE CLASS” REGISTRATION NOTE: A $40 refundable deposit is required with all “Free Class” registrations.

PayPal registrations are charged at the time of the registration and will be refunded after the class.
