Learn how to teach high school students how to make better decisions about budgeting, saving and spending, credit, debt, and earning an income. The workshop is based on lessons in Financial Fitness for Life that includes background information, preparation materials, student activities, and assessments to promote active learning. All lessons are tied to national standards for personal finance and economic literacy. The workshop will also explore connections between Financial Fitness for Life and the Common Core Standards for ELA and Math. The materials are great for helping students draw inferences from multiple kinds of information sources, evaluating point-of-view, and other Common Core-ELA skills.  Math connections include functions and modeling, expected values, and real world problem-solving issues.  To learn more about the publication and how it could enhance your curriculum visit the Financial Fitness for Life website. Registration for this workshop begins at 8:30 a.m.
