This workshop will include instructional strategies and teacher resources to engage students to become self-directed learners by connecting personal finance standards to college and career readiness.  Our day together will include how to incorporate a career-based budgeting project into the curriculum for a high school personal finance (or independent living) course.  Student examples will be shared to illustrate the process.  Participants will receive all materials needed to implement this project-based learning opportunity into an existing personal finance-related course.  Materials will include complete project guidelines, sample student assessments and examples for how to incorporate business partner and parent engagement into the process. 

Learning objectives include:

  1. Participants will be able to understand how to use a high school personal finance course as a method of addressing many key aspects of College and Career Readiness while providing students an opportunity to be self-directed learners.
  2. Participants will be able to understand ways in which to convey the message of post-secondary planning to parents and students, including access to planning resources as they relate to post-secondary planning and financial literacy.
  3. Participants will preview Everfi and Secure Futures, which are free educational resources for K-12 financial literacy.
