Symposium on Financial Education

Save the Date: October 2, 2007

Tools and Techniques for Teaching Financial Literacy: A Symposium for

New Jersey Educators

Location: Raritan Valley Community College

Time: 9 AM to 2:30 PM

Dear New Jersey Educator,


As you know, financial literacy is included in New Jersey’s Core

Curriculum Content Standards.  The goal of this symposium is to provide

high school teachers with the tools to help them teach their students

the basic principles of financial literacy.


The goal is to share resources that make it easy to incorporate the

fundamentals of earning, spending, saving and investing into their

classrooms and programs.


As a result, educators can provide children with skills that will help

them save for the future, stay out of debt, maintain a good credit

record, pay their taxes, and be responsible, productive citizens.


The event will include presentations by several financial education

experts that will cover many different methods of infusing financial

literacy into the classrooms of all age groups.  In addition, various

curricula and other resources that span K-12 will be on exhibit.


Since the symposium covers many different core content areas, including

business education, social studies, and family and consumer sciences,

you may want to share this invitation with all of your colleagues who

could benefit from this event.
