Financial Literacy Institute for Secondary teachers!

            The Maryland Council on Economic Education (MCEE) is offering a 15 hour Financial Literacy Institute (9 hours online, 6 hours face to face) this summer.

What you get? Content knowledge and materials to teach the Maryland Standards in Personal Finance, PLUS one MSDE credit that you can use for re-certification.

What is required? On Tuesday, August 22nd  (from 9:30 am until 3:30 pm), participants will come to Towson University for a day-long session during which  participates will engage in online lessons, view videos, and react to readings that will help them better understand personal finance concepts and issues. The remaining required 9 hours will be completed online using a variety of web-based resources that other secondary teachers in Maryland have found useful. All assignments will be completed by September 22, 2017.
