Diversify Your Teaching Portfolio with Resources from the St. Louis Fed: The St. Louis Federal Reserve has a dedicated team of educators that write free curriculum in economics and personal finance. The delivery of the economic or personal finance content is done in a variety of ways. Many of our resources tie in the economics and history (world and American) together. Some personal finance lessons are taught through story telling. Resources also include active learning simulations that bring the concepts to life. This presentation will provide a step by step guide to accessing our resources and how to use them in the classroom.
