Annual Conference

Over the course of the next few days I will be blogging about the events, sessions, sights and sounds of the 2009 Council for Economic Education...National Association of Economic Educators...Global Association of Teachers of Economics Annual conference taking place this week in Washington, DC.

My goal this week is to find out more about innovative ways to teach economics to students in grades K-12 so that I can share this information with teachers back in Georgia.

The first gem I have come across is this interesting looking game. What kid wouldn't want to play something called "Budgetball"? What kid wouldn't want to wear oven mitts while trying to throw a ball around?
