What’s New?

 What’s new in October 2017?

We’re excited that our financial literacy resources The 21st Century Student’s  Guide to Financial Literacy Getting Personal and The 21st Century Student’s Guide to Financial Literacy – Going Global have been added to the resource list for Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy.

We have new a website dedicated to the fin lit resources and supplemental instructional materials. The fin lit programs sort of took on a life of their own so they needed their own space.  The site is at www.financialliteracylessons.com. You can preview all of the materials there as well as the Teach the Teacher Podcasts.

We’ve launched a quarterly newsletter The Financial Literacy Teacher. This publication provides new and relevant financial literacy instructional content every few months to help you help your students master these essential skills!

We are attending two upcoming financial literacy events:

October 5-7, 2017 Council for Economic Education 56th Annual Conference in Brooklyn, New York. Join us Oct. 7 at 11:10am in the Foyer Area for my presentation The Reluctant Financial Literacy Teacher. If you are going to be at the conference, please stop by our booth to say hi!

November 3-5, 2017 Jump$tart National Educator Conference, Renaissance Washington D.C. Downtown; Exhibiting

Regarding our study skills resources, we now have a website dedicated to the high school resources:  www.c21publishing.com. If a high school in your district is interested in offering a study skills course, they can review all the program resources and purchase the books through this site. As many of you know, the high school resources are substantially similar to the middle school resources, but were given a more age-appropriate title and cover. This is an excellent program for a Frosh or Soph Academy.

I just returned from our son’s graduation from Waseda University (Japan) Class of 2017. After 4 years he is nearly fluent in Japanese and has made some wonderful friends. Every time I visit Tokyo I come away an even bigger fan of the Japanese. Tokyo is spotlessly clean, well run, and full of nice people. Getting around Tokyo — actually all of Japan — is so easy because of the awesome public transportation. M’Lady has returned to London for her final year at Central Saint Martin, and Number 1 Son is well into his second year at Notre Dame Law School. He loves being a fighting Irish.

As always, if you have any questions about our programs, don’t be shy. My contact info is on the site and I’m happy to help.
