Economic Education Events

The International Marketplace

July 24, 2012
Houston Branch, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas

This one-day forum, cosponsored with the Texas Council on Economic Education, addressed international issues and classroom strategies.

Events around the world this past year remind us of the importance of our connections in the global marketplace. Recent events—car manufacturers looking to Japan for parts, financial managers watching Europe and the continuing debt crisis, energy companies monitoring activity in the Middle East—all focused our attention on the importance of international trade in our daily lives. To thrive in a global society, students require an understanding of actions and reactions around the world. This forum for high school faculty provided educators with timely information on important global events. Lessons and strategies for incorporating this information into classroom activities were also provided.
