Institutes in economics and personal finance are set for July at JMU. The institutes are geared toward, but not limited to, teachers of the required high school class in personal finance and economics.
The Economics Institute, set for July 7-8-9 and 14-15-16, covers the economics portion of the class with instruction on content, methods and materials. The Personal Finance Institute, set for July 21-25, not only covers the personal finance part of the course but also provides excellent materials for personal financial planning by teachers.
The institutes, coordinated by the Virginia Council on Economic Education, are free to participants, thanks to generous financial support from the Bank of America Charitable Foundation, the BB&T Charitable Foundation, Capital One, the Genworth Foundation, Shenandoah Valley Economic Education, Inc., the SunTrust Foundation, the Virginia Bankers Association Education Foundation and Wells Fargo.
