Check out NAEE's New Curriculum Selection Guide
Choosing economics and personal finance curriculum materials for classroom use can be challenging. Do the lessons, videos, and textbooks employ good pedagogical techniques? Is the economic and personal finance content accurate? Are the materials standards-based? Are they grade-level appropriate? The National Association of Economic Educators (NAEE) has created a set of evaluation rubrics that can help you select the best economics and personal finance curriculum materials for your school district, school, or classroom. These rubrics are free for you to download and use. They are aligned with the Council for Economic Education's Voluntary National Standards in Economics and National Standards for Financial Literacy, and they were tested by educators from throughout the country. Also available is a glossary of economics and personal finance terms to help you judge content accuracy.
