Minneapolis Fed offers class supplements for economics educators

Published May 1, 2009  | May 2009 issue

The Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis has created a set of class supplements to help high school teachers meet national standards for economics education. Using articles from Minneapolis Fed publications as a basis for discussion, the supplements address topics that correspond to one or more of EconomicsAmerica's 20 national standards for teaching economics. Community Dividend articles about concentrated poverty, credit scoring, the Earned Income Tax Credit, and African American entrepreneurs are featured under several of the topic categories. To access the supplements, visit the "Teaching Aids … Articles and Class Supplements" page on the Community & Education tab at
