This online professional development program acquaints high school educators with the Keys to Financial Success personal finance curriculum. Over 32 days, participants will work at their own pace through interactive and video modules that acquaint them with the Keys curriculum. All participants will attend five one-hour Zoom sessions with our staff to be held July 1, July 8, July 15, July 22, and July 29.
Composed of 47 lessons designed to help educators teach high school students about personal finance using active and collaborative learning, Keys to Financial Success is a comprehensive plan for a semester or yearlong personal finance course. Newly revised in spring 2020, Keys to Financial Success teaches students the knowledge, skills, and processes required to make sound financial decisions and manage their own personal finances. The lessons engage students in critical thinking, problem solving, and decision-making. The program, taught by economic educators from the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia and the University of Delaware Center for Economic Education and Entrepreneurship, provides the essential professional development and complete classroom resources for teaching personal finance using the Keys model. A deep dive on the program's lessons and curricula is available here.
The content covered in this program can be used to meet state and national standards in personal finance, economics, social studies, family and consumer sciences, and business education, as well as the Common Core State Standards. Participants will receive 30.00 hours of professional development credit (Act 48 in Pennsylvania) and all curriculum resources.
