Over the Summer we had the pleasure of attending a workshop at the Council for Economic Education.  The workshop was excellent.  It was filled with easy to follow ideas & lessons for teaching Economics to a variety of age groups.  The resources were well written and best of all FREE.  They are located in Manhattan near public transportation, provided breakfast & a boxed lunch.  If you have the time and interest, their workshops are definitely worthwhile.
