Help FDIC Enhance Its Money Smart for Young People Curriculum

From our friends at the FDIC:

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) seeks your help in finding Pre-K to 12 educators who are willing to provide feedback on its Money Smart for Young People (MSYP) financial education curriculum. Please pass information about this opportunity on to any schools or educators that are interested in financial education. Anyone that is interested should contact me at educationstudy@icf.com or 301-572-0413 for more information.

Participating educators will use the FDIC’s free MSYP resources with students, and then provide some input on what works well with the curriculum, including instructional approaches that work well to teach the curriculum, and what could be improved. Participants will receive a monetary stipend, as well as training on using the curriculum.

Participants will be asked to provide their feedback between February and June, to inform enhancements to the curriculum that the FDIC will make later this year.

Money Smart for Young People includes an Educator’s Guide, Student Guide (for grades 3-12), and a Parent/Caregiver Guide for use at home, all of which can be downloaded through the FDIC’s Teacher Online Resource Center (https://www.fdic.gov/consumers/education/torc/). The curriculum can be easily incorporated into a range of subjects such as English language arts, mathematics, and social studies.
