Teaching Financial Education in a Variety of Settings


The Family Economics and Financial Education (FEFE) curriculum has traditionally been recognized as a classroom based program. Our team of Master Educators design these ready-to-teach activity-based lessons that make this turn-key curriculum a favorite with over 20,000 current classroom educators nationwide. But classroom teachers aren’t FEFE’s only audience! The newly updated "Essentials Curriculum" features financial concepts taught in 45-60 minute workshops. Over twenty lesson plans are available at the introductory level (grades 7-9) and more advanced level (young adults, including high school and college).

Educators working with young adults find our Advanced Essentials Curriculum very effective with their audiences of learners. A few of our "non-traditional" learning communities include 4-H organizations, the YMCA and outreach programs offered by financial institutions and other community professionals looking to make an impact on future generations and their financial literacy capabilities. Classroom teachers who have limited time to teach financial education find our Essentials Curriculum the "perfect fit" in their academic lesson planning. The facilitation of our newly updated lessons is designed to bring authentic learning to students and to allow flexibility for the educator. Check out the "Essentials Curriculum" today along with our other FEFE resources and lesson plans and see why over 900 educators from all corners of the country attended the Summer of 2010 Trainings and Workshops.
