Master Teacher of Economics (ONLINE!)

Description: Economics is really cool! There is no other subject that is more “real world”. Learn how to teach the subject in an exciting, engaging and hands-on manner through the Master Teacher in Economics (MTE) program. It is designed for middle and high school teachers to increase their economic understanding. This improves teachers’ abilities to bring economics to their students in stand-alone economics courses or to integrate economics as a strand within social studies and business curricula.

For: Middle school and high school teachers

Where: The MTE is an online course (75 hours). There will be one synchronous online orientation class meeting on 6/15/20 and the remainder of your work will be done online asynchronously to be completed by July 31, 2020.

Requirements:

When: Orientation June 15, 2020; Synchronous; Online**

**Attendance at orientation is REQUIRED.

What’s in it for me?: 7.5 CEUs, lesson plans, possible 193 economics endorsement on license; $500 stipend for completion. For teachers of stand alone economics courses there is an additional $500 stipend available to you upon certification of your principal.*

*All teachers completing the Master Teacher of Economics program must meet the requirements in the principal certification letter in order to receive the additional $500 stipend. We expect that all teachers receiving this $2,000 investment will incorporate economics into their classrooms post MTE program. The purpose of the additional $500 stipend is to encourage teachers to ask to be assigned to teach economics and for the principals to assign MTE prepared teachers to teach the stand alone economics course after the MTE certification is obtained.

Stock Market Game (ONLINE!)

Description: The Mississippi Stock Market Game (SMG) is a simulation of a real market, designed to involve students in the world of finance and investing as a means of helping them learn about how a market economy works.
