Resources for Teachers


The Teaching Free Enterprise in Arkansas curriculum coincides with Arkansas’s state economics standards. The curriculum includes lessons, hands on activities, assessment materials, and a wealth of primary and secondary source information that teachers can use to teach economics in their classrooms.

Professional Development Workshops:

Throughout the year, ACRE experts travel around the state to lead professional development workshops. These full-day workshops give teachers throughout Arkansas the opportunity to hear new ideas, discuss economic topics, and collaborate with colleagues about best practices in teaching economics.
