Tips for Building Fiscal Responsibility in Students

September 22, 2018 - Denver

The Federal Reserve System is an excellent source of ready-to-use lessons for teachers.  We’ve combed through educational resources from several Federal Reserve Districts and come up with this compilation of lessons focused on personal finance and financial literacy.  We’ll demonstrate a variety of these lessons and show you tips on how to find, access online, and make use of the best resources the Federal Reserve system has to offer.  This class will primarily focus on secondary (6-12) lessons, but all K-12 teachers are welcome and will find the information valuable.  Students (and their teachers) need ways to develop and/or build their personal fiscal responsibility – this class will give you the content and practical lessons you need to teach PFL (based on the newest revisions in the Colorado Academic Standards).
