Ferrarini works in Tokyo

Tawni Ferrarini, Sam M. Cohodas Professor at Northern Michigan University, brought two Michigan educators on her most recent trip to Tokyo, where they promoted integrating economics throughout the K-12 system using the U.S. model. She was accompanied by Nancy Usitalo, a third grade teacher at Sandy Knoll in Marquette, and Derek D’Angelo, Utica High School teacher and president of the Michigan Council on Economic Education. The trio ran workshops, led classrooms, and met with superintendents and teachers. The trip was sponsored by the Council on Economic Education-Japan and funded by the Japan Ministry of Education.
