The Economic & Financial Impact of the Oklahoma City Bombing

The Oklahoma Council on Economic Education (OCEE) and the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum are partnering to offer the first ever teacher training workshop that will focus on the economic and financial impact of the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building.   This workshop will examine the financial costs that it took to rebuild Oklahoma City including the relocation of affected businesses, the cost of health care, and the loss of income to individuals, families and businesses.  The workshop will also focus on the tremendous amount of financial support that flowed into Oklahoma City to help with the needs and recovery and how those funds were managed and the needs were met.   Guest speakers will include experts with personal accounts on how everything came together and the economic impact of the tragedy.

This workshop is primarily focused on Social Studies standards as well as some content and information that will be useful for Personal Finance instruction and is suitable for teachers in grades 7-12.  Teachers will receive newly developed lessons and classroom activities.

Wednesday, September, 19, 2012 9:00-4:00 Location:  Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum 620 N. Harvey, OKC Lunch will be provided

This workshop is limited to only 100 participants.
