Centers for Economic Education

Although KCEE is hosted by the W. Frank Barton School of Business at Wichita State University (WSU) and is a separate legal entity, the Council also partners with six regional Centers for Economic Education at the state's Regents universities to provide additional educator resources. You may follow the individual links at the bottom of the page to contact each Center and to learn more about their workshops and programs.

The Centers for Economic Education at each of the state's six Regents universities provide teachers with first-hand economic understanding and professionally developed curriculum, lesson plans, and classroom materials.  

Through an array of graduate credit courses and special workshops, teachers are introduced to exciting ways to integrate economic concepts and economic decision-making skills into their existing classroom curriculum.

Courses and Workshops Explore:

  • Professionally developed grade appropriate curriculum and materials to teach economic concepts and personal financial skills.
  • Techniques to integrate economic concepts into existing curriculum.
  • Local, state and national standards for economics and personal financial economics.
  • Public policy issues such as entrepreneurship, taxes, international trade, agri-business, and the environment.
  • Classroom activities such as the Stock Market Game™, Mini-Society®, and LifeSmarts®.
  • Internet and multi-media based teacher resources such as EconEdLink; ECONnections, and the Virtual Economics CD.

Other Center Services:

  • The Centers maintain an extensive library of curriculum and classroom materials.
  • Act as the overall economic education information resource for teachers.
  • Provide consultancy services regarding curriculum development and student assessment to educators and administrators.

Thanks to our contributors, partial scholarships are available to certified Kansas teachers participating in economic education credit courses/workshops offered through these Centers for Economic Education.
