In this webinar, teachers will be able to:
- Understand how to use children’s literature written by Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) authors to teach economics and personal finance concepts.
- Walk away with classroom-ready lesson plans to immediately integrate into language arts and economic lessons.
This video is available to view for EconEdLink members only.
Teachers are introduced to a collection of lessons written by Colleen Gray, K-8 Education Director, and Michelle Deziel, Master Teacher, from the Minnesota Council on Economic Education. The goal of the collection is to highlight children’s literature written by authors that are Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) and how to extrapolate economic lessons from every story. In addition to integrating language arts and economic standards, Colleen and Michelle also integrated social justice standards into the lessons to demonstrate how to incorporate inclusive practices into the classroom.
