President Jackson and the Veto of the Second National Bank:  

During this workshop, teachers will learn how to incorporate an EconEdLink lesson on President Andrew Jackson's Veto of of the Second National Bank into their classrooms.  We will provide dynamic ideas and resources to engage students as they discuss the historical context and debate surrounding the National Bank in the 1800's.  We will also explore applications to contemporary central banking issues.
