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.
