Help your students develop a plan for their future. Learn about resources and strategies for teaching middle school students about postsecondary education and careers. This session will highlight personal finance concepts, goal-setting strategies, and online education and career resources. It will integrate Common Core and related Tennessee standards. The workshop will provide free supplemental resources. We highly encourage educators to bring their own technology to take full advantage of the session.
This session is appropriate for library media specialists, guidance counselors, and classroom teachers wanting to help students prepare for their futures. A grant that the U.S. Department of Education awarded Middle Tennessee State University will cover substitute teacher expenses for middle school educators attending the training.
The program is conducted in partnership between Middle Tennessee State University Center for Economic Education and the Nashville Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta.
Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. There is no charge for this program, but registration is required as space is limited. For more information, please contact Jackie Morgan at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 615-251-7239.
