About the event
Colorado has just revised its Economics and Personal Finance standards, and so let’s revisit some essential concepts that form the foundation of our decision- making for the rest of our lives.
Themes like choice, opportunity cost and scarcity have been in the news a lot the past few months due to the pandemic, yet we often focus on short- term gain at the expense of long- term costs. We will focus on the implications of foregone alternatives (for kids as well as adults) and demonstrate a variety of in-class and virtual lessons to help K -8 students make better decisions and understand what they are “giving up” when they find themselves having to make a choice.
