wmnntbks250.jpg (30018 bytes)
With the assistance of a HEED Fund grant, elementary and secondary school teachers in Caldwell County received access to a variety of economics-based curricula and resources. Making informed economic decisions is an important skill that often receives little attention in elementary and secondary school settings. Rebecca Travnichek, Consumer and Family Economics Specialist, and Sherry Siever, Youth Education Specialist, were the recipients of the HEED grant. They wanted to address this need by enhancing the economic knowledge and experiences of K-12 students through accurate and activity-oriented programs. With the HEED funds, they purchased several economics-education programs and provided the opportunity for teachers to attend workshops to instruct them about the curricula. Pictured is Sherry Siever with some of the economics curricula.
