Teaching students about economics or how to manage their personal finances doesn’t have to be difficult or time-consuming. The Making Cents Project supports integrating personal finance and economics into subjects such as language arts, math, and social studies as much as possible – particularly in grade K-8.
For high school level students, a standalone course in each subject is beneficial. Some of the most widely used curriculum tools and resources to support each of these approaches – K-8 integration and standalone high school courses.
The Making Sense is a cooperative effort of the Pennsylvania Department of Education and Penn State University, Making Cents is working to improve financial education in Pennsylvania schools.
