Throughout U.S. history, Americans have practiced, celebrated, and taught the ethic of thrift: work hard, spend wisely, and give back. This workshop facilitated by Bernadette McHenry, the curriculum specialist for the Templeton Center for Thrift and Generosity, invites teachers to reimagine thrift education for the 21st century. Participants will be provided with resources and ideas for bringing thrift to life in their classrooms and will have a chance to view HSP's current document display "To Save in Little  Things:  An American History of Thrift." Act 48 credit is available, and refreshments will be served.
