Some people might not be aware that the Federal Reserve Banks provide a wide range of educational resources, including lesson plans, online economic indicators for classroom use, and materials on personal finances. The Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco offers ten different resources, including interviews with economists and information about bank tours. The Economics in Person section features the above-mentioned interviews, where visitors might start by watching Mary C. Daly talk about the recent Great Recession. Moving on, teachers and students will enjoy the Open & Operating video. This 16-minute film is designed to teach young people about the operations of a central bank and how the bank responded to the events of September 11th. The site is rounded out by a personal finance lesson plan and a link to the Federal Reserve Education Portal.
