Economics Teaching

Take it to the classroom

UW-Eau Claire has a proven record of turning out amazing teachers. If you feel passionate about sharing your knowledge with the next generation, this rigorous program might be for you. Talk to your advisor to discuss the requirements for entrance to the teacher education program.

Students in K-12 will one day be making the important decisions for themselves and society. They will grow up to be consumers, borrowers, investors and voters. The future depends on their ability to make reasoned, informed choices, and an early grounding in economics can impart that skill. We teach other crucial skills long before college; why should economic reasoning wait?
