First, for those who have clicked over from our emailed product release, here’s the promised ONE STOP SHOP FOR THE COMPREHENSION QUESTIONS.
If you didn’t receive our email (Why aren’t you on our mailing list??? Sign up at the bottom of this page!) read on…
On occasion, teachers who have found our lesson guides on our website have emailed to ask, “So, it says #13-17 are assessment questions, but I don’t see those anywhere. How do I access those questions?”
Whether you consider it a gift for the holidays, a final for this semester, a pre-test for next term, or just a really awesome set of 50 questions, our Full Course Assessment is ready to go.
- 50 easy-to-grade questions. Most are multiple-choice with a few true/false, ranking, and multiple-answers as well.
- They cover all 11 units of our NGPF Personal Finance curriculum (checking, saving, credit cards, credit scores, paying for college, budgeting, investing, financial pitfalls, career, taxes, and insurance).
- A single question may cover multiple topics, mimicking the complex decision-making often needed in the real world of personal finance.
We’ve got a new product release planned for next week, so that deadline should have all of my attention right now, but instead I got sidetracked by something the Philadelphia Fed featured on Twitter. Imagine that — Twitter distracted me from work…
Anyway, in case you teach personal finance and also got caught up on social media instead of lesson planning, my Thursday gift to you: a Quick & Easy Lesson on Credit Scores.
We’re always excited to generate new content for teachers to use, and we’ve got two outstanding new lessons for you this week.
Investing for Retirement
First, if you use our Investing for Retirement lesson, your students will learn about Social Security, pensions, 401(k)s, Roth IRAs, and Traditional IRAs. More importantly, they’ll leave understanding why they need to start saving for retirement ASAP! What to look out for:
Our September product releases just keep on rolling with our latest feature — the Next Gen Personal Finance Project Bank! This is a convenient way to spice up your personal finance curriculum with some engaging, in-depth work for your students. To jump right in, click the link above.
These are two topics teachers repeatedly told us were difficult to teach, so we decided we needed to give our community what they wanted.
The reaction has been spectacular! It’s only 2:00 p.m. here in California and we’ve already broken our single-day record for site visits!
