PERSONAL FINANCE AND HOW TO TEACH IT
The goal of these workshops is to help teachers acquire the knowledge and develop the skills they need to deliver personal finance to their students. Following a general session, attendees will break into grade level bands. A mentor teacher will help everyone get a handle on the newly revised and approved (Spring 2018) Colorado Academic Standards in personal financial literacy. This afternoon will offer opportunities to learn about financial programs and services available to support teachers at all grade levels.
